The decision dinners are lively, inspiring, heart warming and fun filled dinners where a group of Culture Bank members discuss the applications received each round. They are attended only by Culture Bank members and the aim of these dinners is to decide which funding application(s) will gain our financial support. Often, these get togethers are hosted by a Culture Bank member and sometimes, we eat out in Wollongong. We are always mindful of making these affordable/informal events, and members usually contribute to the dinners by bringing a plate, desert or a bottle of wine.
Decisions are made purely on the strength of the ideas presented. The funding applications are read aloud to the table and then discussed. A vote as to whether funding has been approved or not goes by majority consensus.
Invites go out to all members to attend the decision dinners, and are made via email and also on our FB page.
WE LOVE OUR MEMBERS TO GET INVOLVED IN THIS PROCESS!
