beers and ideas
How it works
We've created a process that makes it easy to turn a 'how-cool-would-that-be' idea into a real-life placemaking project. Here's how it works.
1. THINK OF A placemaking IDEA and apply online
Ideas can be fun, helpful, delightful, clever, innovative or all of the above. Consider how, who and what you might need to make it happen and apply online here.
2. 4 IDEAS ARE CHOSEN
The committee will meet and choose 4 ideas. We're looking for the most unique, out-of-the-box, inspired ideas that are new for Warrnambool.
3. INVITE ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS TO THE BEERS AND IDEAS event NIGHT
On the night everyone pays $10 at the door in exchange for a drink and a vote.
4. SHARE YOUR IDEA
You'll have 5 minutes to share your idea and answer a few questions from the audience. No slick, rehearsed performances necessary - just your voice and your idea.
5. THE CROWD VOTES
We'll tally up the votes while the crowd has a chance to meet new people, make connections, chat about new ideas.
6. THE WINNING IDEA
is the one with the most votes. Simple. The winner takes home all of the money raised from the door to bring their idea to life. Winners will come along to future events to report on their progress and experience.
As a special kick-starter for Beers and Ideas, the Warrnambool City Council City Renewal Program will match the funding raised on the night to a maximum of $3,000. And, as a regular feature, WCC will fast track any permits required to make your idea happen ASAP and help out with resources wherever possible.
