Smart Events – Supporting South West Events

Smart Events – Supporting South West Events!

THIS PROGRAM IS NOW CLOSED

OUR STATEMENT OF PURPOSE

To provide support for volunteers in the South West involved in the organisation and management of community festivals and events.

Smart Events was a program run by Volunteer South West until 2019 which assisted event organisers to build their capacity for regional festivals and events, so that community celebrations could become more sustainable, not just economically, but socially and culturally.

Based in the South West, Smart Events provided information and support in all areas of event management for a number of years.

Smart Events worked by expanding the networking between regional community groups; reducing duplication, and maximizing the efficiency of volunteer time and effort.

Community celebrations are vital for building and maintaining vibrant, cohesive regional communities. Community events present the opportunity for celebration, business and employment growth, and the development of skills and social capital.
