Who we are
Culture Continuum CIC is an events management company who are passionate about community and grassroots collaboration. We design, stage and partner to create cultural events and venue specific projects to connect the arts and creative industries with grassroots and outreach initiatives. Our focus is upon improving engagement, empowerment and accessible opportunities, especially for economically disadvantaged regions, communities and groups. Wherever possible, we provide or support industry training programs, volunteering and employment opportunities, and we nurture grassroots projects within our event planning strategies. We believe in delivering equitable events that champion community resilience, social responsibility and wellbeing, and collaboratively work with other organisations who align with this ethos.
What we achieve
Piloted in 2018, Continuum Camp is our flagship annual not-for-profit community event. This fun family focused weekend combines an affordable camping holiday and a mini-festival style experience together with an engaging space that supportively showcases regionally based artists, youth projects, small or family run businesses and grassroots initiatives. We provide an educational community hub to raise awareness and networking opportunities for different arts, volunteer, outreach, and humanitarian organisations. Together with community engagement, we offer training and volunteer experience within our event management and production teams, and employment opportunities for the many regional event infrastructure suppliers required to stage this event. We deliver a subsided accessible event for an economically deprived region at a fraction of the cost of more expensive festival type events.
How we achieve it
We design our events from the ground-up as a collaborative and engaging process, and wherever possible we support marginalised and disadvantaged groups. For Continuum Camp, we use an event model we call 'Creative Community Culture'. We find and invite people, organisations and communities to link and nurture the involvement and skills required to hold this event. We apply our equitable ticket-volunteer system, inviting participation and collaboration from everyone, including management, production and artists. Volunteering and participation is encouraged from all the ticket purchasers too, with our altruistic approach progressively shifting attendees from regular event consumers to integrated and empowered community participators. As we invest so much time into supporting regional communities and businesses, we reciprocally receive assistance, technical support and discounts.
