Meet the Festival team – Vicki

Blue Mountains City Council is a partner in the Festival of Resilience, and as Council’s Manager of Community, Libraries and Customer Services, I am very excited to have been involved with the Festival since its inception. I am the conduit with the Festival committee and the events, staff and people involved from Council in this month-long event. I am very excited to help with the planning of this Festival for the community of the Blue Mountains.

As a Planetary Health advocate, I hope the Festival of Resilience will bring hope, joy, awareness and connectivity to the Blue Mountains community. I believe that we can all learn from each other and this Festival will bring out the playfulness and knowledge of the local community.
