The City of Hobart and the Mercury are pleased to offer assistance and support to community groups interested in entering the 2016 Myer Hobart Christmas Pageant through the Mercury Community Project. The Mercury Community Project will offer practical support to three community groups, to assist in developing their walking entry for the 2016 Myer Hobart Christmas Pageant.
If you are a first time entrant, English is your second language, or you are a new emerging community group, we would love to hear from you. If selected to join the project, we will provide you with assistance and support for your design, with our Community Artist on hand to help your group deliver an exciting and innovative entry.
