Cittaslow Goolwa volunteers have a well-deserved reputation for helping out with a myriad of initiatives run by other groups and organisations for the benefit of the community. We are always keen to participate in community-wide events organised to bring many different groups together for learning, sharing and enjoyment.
We regularly participate in local events such as the annual Christmas Pageant the biennial SA Wooden Boat Festival (Covid 19 - permitting) and the inaugural Deadly Fun Run held in 2020.
Cittaslow Goolwa volunteers also collaborate in more major initiatives; these have included being ambassadors for the national Regional Arts Australia Conference and Festival hosted in Goolwa 2012 (known as Kumuwuki (or ‘big wave’ in Ngarrindjeri), and partnering with the United Nations to present ‘A Pipi Installation’ by Andrew Baines at Goolwa Beach followed by lunch prepared by local chefs with Cheong Liew in 2018.
Southern Deadly Fun Run
In 2020 and 2021 we participated in the Southern Deadly Fun Run held in Goolwa.
The Deadly Fun Run Series is an Indigenous Marathon Foundation initiative that introduces running and walking to regional, remote and city communities in a fun, non-intimidating environment for men, women and children. The 2021 run celebrated our dads, males carers, uncles and brothers.
