Meta Viewing Event Grants: Sydney WorldPride

Meta Viewing Event Grants returned for 2023 and the Sydney WorldPride edition means more grants were up for grabs to host events across the country to watch either Live and Proud: Sydney WorldPride Opening Concert presented by American Express (Fri 24 Feb) or the Mardi Gras Parade (Sat 25 Feb)!

From Wollongong to Wagga Wagga, Surry Hills to Spring Hill and all the way up to Darwin – the country is coming alive with Official Viewing Events across the country.
