Wow, I’ve never heard of at least half of these (and haven’t been to any of them, ever), but I spose some Canberrans must attend/participate . . . or, um, is that why they need more funding?
Perhaps some of this luverly shiny vote-buying largesse could be directed to a bit of publicity?

Perhaps you could start your own festival called ‘I’m OK: That’s all!’ Culminating in bashing a pinata in the shape of a homeless young person.

Poetix, perhaps you could stay on topic?

I don’t know, I’d say that’s on topic. To my mind, Poetix is making the point that just becuase you haven’t heard of them (and haven’t been to any of them ever!) doesn’t mean they aren’t successful events. You seem like you have a very narrow view of things Miz. Course, I could be reading more into that comment than was intended. /shrug

I think the Canberra Carp-Out is a great event and I’m glad they are getting a bit of funding. Raises a bit of money for charity and gets rid of some of the nasty fish in our waterways to boot.

Now you wouldn’t be referring to the ‘Chisholm Bogan and Homeless Festival’ held on Boxing Day?
