Following the 2018 NMF feedback has been sought from all stakeholders including festival goers, stallholders, community organisations, showcase coordinators and ACT Government agencies.

This feedback is being collected through a range of methods including formal surveys, face to face debrief sessions, emails and phone calls from attendees and staff reports on the event. Specifically:

a survey facilitated by IER to gather feedback from across the Canberra population to provide information on attendee satisfaction and suggestions for improvement;

a survey of all stakeholders, including stallholders and those involved in the Event Control Centre operations;

face to face debrief sessions with contractors, CAT Government partners and showcase coordinators.

Volunteering and Contact ACT, who coordinate the many volunteers who supported the Festival, has also produced an evaluation report that will inform future volunteer engagement.

All of this feedback is now being utilised as part of the 2018 review process to shape the policies and procedures for the 2019 festival.

The participation policy will be updated accordingly for the 2019 festival and will be sent to all stakeholder groups for comment prior to publishing. This process will take place in mid-2018 and the final participation policy will be published at the time applications open for stallholders.


Mr Gentleman (in reply to a supplementary question by Mr Coe on Thursday, 15 February 2018):

I am advised that ACT Policing records show that the number of incidents reported to Police are less than the number claimed in the question.

Notwithstanding, I can advise that between 1 January 2017 and 28 February 2018, seven offenders have been arrested and charged, with investigations ongoing for other matters.

The Government takes crime seriously and will continue to work with ACT Policing.
