Community Fuel | 11 August

Want to warm up this winter and contribute to Geelong’s thriving creative scene?

Add your financial fuel to our region’s creative fire with Geelong Arts Centre’s Creative Engine ‘Community Fuel’!

Community Fuel invites local creatives from across the G21 region to pitch their ideas to arts-loving members of the Greater Geelong community. See the impact of the community’s collective fuel instantly, with all money raised from tickets sold awarded to the winning pitch, as well as matched funding from Geelong Arts Centre.

A $10 Community Fuel ticket gets you dinner, live entertainment, and most importantly, a coveted vote for your favourite creative idea! Gather your mates - this is grass roots, community action at its best and the kind of social enterprise that can change lives, hearts, and minds.

The night is dedicated to celebrating and supporting the artistic heart of our clever and creative region, Community Fuel will see the Geelong community come together at our Ryrie Street Level 1 Lounge support a local creative or organisation while also enjoying the best in live and local entertainment over a bowl of soup and a refreshing beverage.

You’ll hear pitches from 3-4 local creatives across a range of artforms and will have the opportunity to ask questions.

With great fun, great soup (hot, home-made and a roll), great local live musicians comes great responsibility! That’s right – it’s YOU who will have the opportunity to collectively fund your favourite project pitched on the night.

After spending the evening listening, eating, mingling, and voting on a favourite project, the final tally will be counted and the winning pitch will be announced, taking home with them the money from the door AND matched funding from Geelong Arts Centre! 100% community funded and supported by Geelong Arts Centre, with 100% of funds going straight to the artists who need it most.

The successful applicants will be announced one month prior to each event. But if you are keen to support your local creatives and join in the fun, purchase your ticket now!
