Community Development

​Community Movies

Council occasionally provides community movies on a large inflatable screen in partnership with local community groups and schools. Events are usually organised and run by the community group or school, with the screen, projector and operator provided by Council, subject to conditions.

Community groups interested in hosting a movie should download and read the Outdoor Movies - Overview for Community Groups prior discussing dates with Council. 

As a general rule, a community group would expect to pay around $350 to Council for the equipment and operator, however, where Council deems the event to present a significant community strengthening and capacity-building opportunity, Council may choose to waive part of all of the fees, subject to Council's sponsorship being appropriately acknowledged.

Council aims to spread community movie nights across the region in an equitable manner in response to community requests. Council provides a limited number of community movie events each year and cannot meet every request.

Community groups are encouraged to list their events on the Events Calendar on the tourism website

Once you have read the Overview for Community Groups​, please contact Council's Community Engagement Team on CETeam@lvrc.qld.gov.au or by calling 1300 005 872.

Public Art Projects

Council undertakes public art projects from time to time subject to available funding. Projects are consistent with Council's Arts and Cultural Plan 2014-2017.

Disaster-ready Community Groups

Council recognises that community groups of all shapes and sizes play an important role in times of disaster. They may provide support services to people who have been directly affected by floods or fires; they may provide volunteers to help clean up; they may get programs up and running so that people can continue with as much of normal life as possible; or​ they may help in other ways. 

For groups to be able to help following disasters, they need to be reasonably disaster proof themselves. To assist your group to be prepared and able to respond in a timely manner, we encourage you to download​ these resources below and share them with your group. 

Remember, if you wait until a disaster strikes to think about preparing, it will likely be too late. Make time at your next group meeting to discuss your preparations. 

If you need assistance, contact Council's Disaster Management Team on 1300 005 872 or email us
