2) The Canberra Plan has been developed as a document by Canberrans for Canberrans with very extensive community involvement in the creation of its three 'chapters' - the Social Plan, Spatial Plan and Economic White Paper. The Plan also has, amongst its seven themes, 'A Dynamic Heart' - referring to the focus on making Civic and central Canberra a more vibrant place.
The sounds of 'live' music in Civic Square is consistent with the 'Dynamic Heart' theme of The Canberra Plan.
In planning the event, it was considered important to involve the community. Three speakers from the community represented three distinct demographics and more than 50 talented young Canberra musicians were given the opportunity to perform on the day. This was considered to be in keeping with The Canberra Plan's spirit of community participation. The engagement of two musical groups, at a minimal cost, helped to highlight the range of talent that exists in the Canberra community.
The use of marquees are commonplace for outdoor events, to provide shelter both from inclement weather and the sun. One large marquee was required to accommodate the more than 300 people in attendance. Two smaller marquees accommodated a Whole of ACT Government display (reused from the Royal Canberra Show) and catering for morning tea.
