A community canvas for you to colour…

Morgan Street, Mount Morgan streetscape has recently had a facelift, blending historic elements with modern facilities. To celebrate, Rockhampton Regional Council is inviting organisations and individuals to work with us to deliver a number of activities that showcase Morgan Street as the lively heart of Mount Morgan.

The Lively Morgan Street Grants programme will activate Morgan Street & surrounds in 2018/19 through a range of events, festivals installations, pop-ups, public classes, recreational & creative activities. Rockhampton Regional Council is looking to offer cash & in-kind grants for activities that demonstrate the broad possibilities of the site, test new ideas & can show an ability to be self-sufficient in the future. Download a copy of the Lively Morgan Street Programme Guidelines.(PDF, 6MB)
