Register your event
In canoes and caravans, on surfboards and in ships, by stars and satellites, we have journeyed across and to this wide brown land
The National Trust of Australia (WA) invites your organisation to register events in the Western Australian Heritage Festival which will run from 18 April – 18 May 2014 and celebrates Australia’s historic, natural and Aboriginal heritage.
The Festival The Festival offers an opportunity to educate the public about your organisation’s goals and projects. It assists people to learn about and appreciate Australia’s heritage and provides a chance for you to take advantage of the promotional opportunities and attract interest and visitors.
In 2013 (its second year), Western Australian Heritage Festival attracted over 140 events and almost 48,000 event goers around the state, and is part of a national festival that involves over 1,500 events and 350,000 visitors.
Events Our exciting Journeys theme isn’t mandatory but might inspire you to consider focusing on a particular story, collection or anniversary.
If you are already planning an event, perhaps you might think of tweeking it to match the Festival dates and Journeys theme.
Events are welcome from the smallest community organisation through to the largest company or institution. So whether your event celebrates WA’s bushland, migrant or Aboriginal culture or retro heritage skills, why not visit the website (www.nationaltrust.org.au/wa) for some inspiration? Can’t swing it on your own? Think about co-hosting an event with another organisation to share the load and/or enhance the experience.
Promotion and Communications At a national level the National Trusts around Australia are coordinating each State’s festival and have produced a range of marketing materials and strategies to brand the festivals and implement a cohesive promotional campaign, which will be enhanced at the Western Australian level. Visit www.nationaltrust.org.au/wa for more details.
Registering an Event If you’re interested in hosting an event, the website will guide you to our online registration form and offer useful documents about how to promote and coordinate your event more effectively.
Registration is free. Register online at www.nationaltrust.org.au/wa by Friday 6 December 2014.
