Council is calling for Expressions of Interest for a Festival Coordinator to undertake the development and delivery of the Cowra Festival of International Understanding from 11-20 March 2016 in conjunction with Council and the Festival Committee.
The Festival is the premier annual festival in Cowra and showcases the culture of a different Guest Nation each year. It incorporates exhibitions, a Festival Parade, a Festival Carnival and various civic and community based functions. Council is seeking to ensure this significant event is afforded the focus required to successfully stage a broad-based community event.
The Festival Coordinator will work as part of a team and report directly to the General Manager.
Details can be found below and the Council Customer Service Centre.
Expressions of Interest close at 4pm on 16 October 2015.
Our website contains information on Council services, media, development applications, public exhibitions, and meeting agenda and minutes.
However, websites can always be improved, so Council is now inviting all of our clients to have their say.
