The Organising Committee of the Benalla Street Art Festival invites community members and local businesses to join an informative session on Thursday, 30 November 2023. Taking place at the Lakeside Community Centre from 5.30pm, this gathering provides a sneak peek into the progress made since the March information session earlier this year. Attendees can anticipate valuable insights into the upcoming Benalla Street Art Festival 2024, accompanied by complimentary drinks and nibbles.

Scheduled officially for March 2024, the festival has garnered substantial support from the Victorian Government’s Regional Events Fund and Benalla Rural City Council. From Friday, March 22, the streets of Benalla will be transformed into vibrant canvasses.

Eddie Zammit, the newly appointed Curator with over 20 years of experience in creative project delivery, will illuminate festival developments in the upcoming meeting. The event will also mark the launch of the crowdfunding campaign, aiming to raise $50,000 for fringe events and promotions associated with the Benalla Street Art Festival.

Zammit will introduce the Street Art Festival’s vision for 2024, covering dates, times, and programming. The meeting will also showcase the festival’s website and social media pages.

Businesses are encouraged to take advantage of increased visitation by staying open during the festival and hosting activities for fringe events. Expressions of interest for volunteers, fringe events, and sponsors are sought, with roles available and registration accessible through the festival’s new website to be launched in the coming weeks.

“The Benalla Street Art Festival is not just an event; it's a community-driven initiative supported by the Victorian Government, designed to boost the local economy, showcase local, national, and international artistic talent, and create an immersive cultural experience for both residents and visitors,” Eddie emphasised.
