Ballarat International Foto Biennale says:
The City of Ballarat support is one of the cornerstones for delivering the Ballarat International Foto Biennale, providing highly valued resources to support our small team of staff and volunteers.
They offer a collaborative, engaged approach to staging a successful event, bringing shared benefits to the local community and event organisers. The City of Ballarat also provided access to well- managed council-owned assets and delivered marketing activity and communications channels that supported our event marketing and promotion. Senior council management also provided additional support.
