Live Well Festival is seeking interested partners

Live Well Festival will return in 2021 and Central Coast Council is looking for partners to make the event bigger, brighter and better than ever.

The challenges of 2020 have emphasised the importance of the ‘Live Well’ message, to embrace the abundant healthy living and wellbeing opportunities on the Coast and experience the benefits.

Council Unit Manager Community Partnerships, Glenn Cannard, said next year’s event will include a week of activities at local health focused businesses in the lead up to the major event day.

“We’re planning to come back with a ‘Live Well’ bang in 2021 and are looking to partner with local businesses and groups to deliver a host of fun, and informative and health focused experiences,” Cannard said.

“It is the diversity of ‘Live Well’ that makes it such a great festival, and in 2021 there will be a week of offerings at local business as we build towards the main festival event.

“For Live Well Week, we’re looking for workshops and sessions held at local businesses, anything from yoga to cooking classes, from fitness sessions to workshops on how to improve your wellbeing.

“The main Live Well Festival event will be built around four key HUBS – Eat, Move, Think and Love Your Earth.

“We’re looking for guest speakers to fill the event  stages, as well as low to moderate physical activity offerings for the Move Zone and Kids Move Zone.

“If you are a health or wellbeing practitioner or have a health focused business on the Coast, we’d love to hear how you could contribute to Live Well 2021.”

Mayor, Lisa Matthews, said living well and the Central Coast go hand-in-hand.

“Our beautiful environment here on the Coast lends itself to healthy living, particularly getting active outdoors,” Mayor Matthews said.

“I’d encourage local businesses, groups and organisations to get involved with this fantastic event, which is more important than ever after the challenges of 2020.”

Central Coast Council is closely monitoring NSW Government requirements related to the management of COVID-19.

This year ‘Live Well’ was offered in a digital format, with local businesses given the opportunity to showcase their health knowledge and services in a series of short videos featured on Council’s Coast Connect YouTube channel.

In 2021, the main Live Well Festival event will be held on March 28 and will be preceded by Live Well Week from March 21-27.

To get involved, submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) by October 30.
