First round of community centenary projects announced

johnboy 18 December 2011 2

Chief Minister Gallagher has announced the first $200k of the million dollar Community Centenary Initiative Fund:

    — National Trust (ACT), Centenary of Canberra Rally from Jervis Bay to Canberra, $70,000

    Tuggeranong Community Arts Incorporated, Lakeside community sculpture project, $10,000

    Artsound FM Inc, Heritage Preservation Project to archive Artsound FMs recordings, $9,900

    Cake Decorators Association of the ACT, Cake Decorators Open Day, $1,000

    National Foundation for Australian Women, Permanent on-line exhibition – From Lady Denman to Katy Gallagher – A Century of Women’s Contributions to Canberra, $38,500

    Kulture Break, Dance Nation community dance project, $25,000

    Morris Register of NSW, Morris 100 Canberra Morris car rally and tour of Battle of the Sites towns, $7,400

    Scouts Association of Australia, ACT Branch, Scouts Aloft hot air balloon and youth pilot training program, $30,000

One can only hope this stunningly weak field (I’d personally rate half that list as being worthwhile) will inspire better entrants for the majority of the money still up for grabs.

If you think you’ve got a better idea there’s a web page to apply on or you can call the dashing Centenary of Canberra Community Engagement Officer, Mr Dan Watters on 6205 8408.

How about Scones Aloft, where Kake Krumbs are thrown to the grateful masses? At the moment it sounds like a huge school fete.

Most seem to be grabs for money that are not related to the centenary. Though I do like the cake decorators’ open day – or at least I like cake.
