Coastal Twist festival receives $73,000 in grants
The Coastal Twist Arts and Culture Festival has received a $53,611 grant from the NSW Government's Regional Events Acceleration Fund.
Announcing the grant, Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Mr Adam Crouch said the festival was " returning to the Central Coast to celebrate difference, diversity and all things regional".
The five-day event would feature free and ticketed programs for all ages between January 19 and 23.
The State Government grant is in addition to a $20,000 Council grant awarded last week under its "Community Events and Place Activation Grant Program".
"Audiences will experience the best local food and drinks the Central Coast has to offer, while being treated to events such as the DJ-hosted 'Life's a Beach' day," Mr Crouch said.
"This event will be the perfect way to spend a summer's day on the Central Coast, showcasing our region's vibrant arts, music and culture which will also bring tourism dollars to local businesses and help stimulate our economy."
There would be a smorgasbord of indoor and outdoor events featuring professional performers and artists from across Australia.
Coastal Twist festival director Ms Glitta Supernova said the Regional Events Acceleration Fund would help champion existing and already successful diverse regional events, such as Coastal Twist Arts and Culture Festival.
"This is a game changer for the Coastal Twist Arts and Culture Festival, which will be attended by an estimated 7000 people, across five days this January."
