After the hip hop expo, they will donate all the Large Trousers to be converted into tents for refugee camps in Rwanda.

How about the Canberra fisherman’s club buy $6k of dynamite and use it on the hip hop expo, please.

So Summernats gets a grant which averages under $15K a year, and the world is at it’s throat.

Somethings not quite fair here.

Celebrating festivus soundslike a good idea p1. Wonder if there’d be any funding available.

Looks good. I left for London 10 years ago this month so no wonder I haven’t heard of it.

Multicultural festival doesn’t get funding?

Its an ACT Government event – its budget comes from the department that runs it.
