There is a shared sense of despair in our community for our cherished and home-grown festivals. These events are usually significant and much anticipated marked in our calendars months in advance. But with the onset of COVID we are all living with the uncertainty of what the future will bring.
This weeks Studio Session is getting stuck into the grit of what our local festival organisers have been working on during their COVID hiatus. We will discuss 'the next BIG thing' for our festivals and events, how they are continuing to engage with their audience from a distance and how the era of COVID has created new and unexpected opportunities.
We will be joined by Rosemary Sorensen of the Bendigo Writers Festival, Colin Thompson of the Blues and Roots festival and David
Chisholm from Bendigo International Festival of Exploratory Music, it’s going to be a great discussion!
