November 2021

This team received a $10,000 grant to bring their idea trial to life! And the Challenge?

This team wants to create a safe and inclusive café space in Ballarat – a café that warmly welcomes all; specifically, members of the LGBTQIA+ community. The café will also include a counselling wing, a performance stage, a ‘Wall of Pride’ (flags for each LGBTIA+ group), a cinema, an eating space, and accommodation for those who have been displaced.

This idea will be trialled with the creation of an in-school Rainbow Alliance at Ballarat Grammar, to give a voice and safe space to all students. With the $10,000 grant from Melbourne Pride, the team will run a pride weekend in Ballarat. Ballarat Pride Weekend will be running in December with a variety of community events for all ages.
