"I am very pleased with the success and great feedback from participants at the annual Three Rivers Festival. The generosity and support of your organization and other sponsors has ensured the continued success of this important gathering and enabled the event to be free and inclusive for communities to access and participate in while being in a culturally safe space.

Over 6 years our festival has developed a large regional audience, some great local partnerships and has developed a sound festival model that integrates music, sport and culture to connect our elders and young people in a fun and safe space."
