Kiama Council has resolved to donate $15,000 to the 2018 KISS Arts Festival, which attracted more than 3000 visitors each day last year.

“We are pleased to report that 2017 saw the biggest entertainment program yet, with over 16 different shows amongst countless community activities like the raft race, lantern making, the fabulously successful AIR KISS Tent and the moving and beautiful Unity Kiama Project,” event organisers said. 

“We credit the success of the festival to a strategic social media campaign, greater community involvement and awareness, not clashing with Wings Over Illawarra, a larger more active committee and excellent weather.”

The event organisers plan to expand on the existing event by diversifying the 2018 program.

“With this extra money, we will be able to once again grow and develop the festival and pay for somebody to advertise and market the festival properly.”
