Under Consideration

The Fun SEPP


We’ve been stuck indoors, unable to do the simple things we enjoy with our family and friends.

The arts and hospitality industries have been some of the hardest hit by the pandemic. We want to help them get back on their feet, easier and faster, and bring people joy through local music, dance, arts, food and drink.

To make it easier for creatives and councils to get venues set up, we are proposing changes to allow for later, longer, and smaller events popping up in more and new locations.

These changes will help us support small businesses and deliver a 24-hour economy that is vibrant, diverse, inclusive, and safe. It will make it easier to hold outdoor events, film, set up artisan food and drink premises or convert shops to arts or small live music venues.
