Townsville, your Commoonity Program is here!

At the heart of Groovin the Moo’s (GTM) festival philosophy is the desire to showcase and support communities and regions that are often those less travelled. GTM’s Community Program has been developing organically each year and we’re thrilled to announce what we’ve got in store for Townsville in 2019.

 

LGBTQI+ Safe Space

Operating since 1966, Ede Events have been at the forefront of event development in the region. They have supplied GTM with marquees, furniture and event equipment since our very first festival and in 2019 are excited to have an even larger presence. Ede Events Extravaganza will be popping up on show day in support of our LGBTQI+ community, they will be hosting an inclusive space complete with drag queens and disco tunes. Make sure you pop in and say g’day.

Local Artist Showcases

Umbrella Studio are running a bunch of community art workshops! Come on down and decorate a suitcase to celebrate the Hotel/Motel theme. The suitcases will be used to decorate various parts of the GTM site. To get involved, email millie@cattleyard.com for more info!

Local Business Involvement

The Hub Creative Centre is a gallery and workshop space for groups to hire or individuals to join in on different activities. Every Friday morning, people get together for a Positive Possibilities Program. The program enables and empowers individuals living with a disability to gain life, social and self-care skills. They have teamed up with the GTM décor team to assist with bringing the festival to life with bright and colourful artworks.

Local Fundraisers and Business Involvement

St Vincent de Paul

St Vincent de Paul will be running a market stall of vintage and second hand clothes that have been sourced from their stores. The money raised will go back towards helping those less fortunate in Townsville and those who have been heavily impacted by the floods.

Queensland Country Women’s Association

The QCWA will be hosting a fundraising stall packed with protein balls and other bits and bobs to get you through the day. Pop your water bottle into a crotchet drink holder or browse through the other crafts made just for you! While you are there have a chat to the QCWA and see how you can get involved; it is not all just tea and scones!

Powder Pen

Returning in 2019, GTM’s Powder Pen will keep you looking festival fresh! For a small donation, you can get a quick hair and make-up “zjoosh” thanks to Beautique. A portion of proceeds from the Powder Pen will go back to the charity of the salons’ choice.
