Supporting Statement
Grant application by Italian Festival Inc


With the support of the Brisbane City Council, Brisbane Metropolitan Bands Association undertakes a series of community based concerts which are provided free to the people of Brisbane.

For the past two years, Brisbane's community bands have been involved in Italian Week, a collaboration which has enriched the music and cultural diversity of the community music landscape and improved the quality of performance to the wider community.

In my capacity as event producers for the Bands in Park programme, I seek out opportunities to encourage with a broad range of community and not-for-profit organisations to further enhance the musical fabric of the city.

The cultural partnership with Italian Week allows community music ensembles to be involved in an event that supports and promotes Italian culture and lifestyle in Queensland and creates colour and diversity for the listening public.

I seek to extend our involvement with Italian week 2012 and to this end, I confirm my support for Italian festival Inc, a not-for-profit organisation which is dedicated to and passionate about promoting multiculturalism in Queensland. I commend this grant application to the Committee and ask that all consideration be given to this project and it’s worthwhile aims.
