The Majura Festival has been run as an annual event by the Northside Community Service (NCS) since 2000. Since then, it has evolved to a visible cultural event signifying the close linkages that have developed between NCS and the local community. An emphasis has been to actively engage local community and businesses in such a way that more ongoing, sustainable relationships continue to be established and celebrated.
The Majura Festival aims to be accessible for all members of the community and encourages local schools, community organisations, businesses, professional performers and residents to get together and celebrate life in the Inner North of Canberra. In recognition of its emergence as a significant local cultural event the festival continues to be successful in securing funding allowing NCS to celebrate its values of empowerment, inclusiveness and participation in the local community.
The Festival is being held this year on the 24 October 2009. Northside Community Service would like to invite the inner north community to be involved in the planning of the Majura Festival:
A community consultation meeting has been scheduled:
