What is an Activation?

An activation is an activity or program that creates an opportunity for people to connect with one another in a public space.

An activation program may be influenced by arts, culture, learning and wellbeing and promotes inclusiveness, being available to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

Activation Pods

Council have created dedicated outdoor spaces located at Box Hill Mall, Britannia Mall, Mitcham and Brentford Square Shopping Centre, Forest Hill for Whitehorse community groups, charitable/not-for-profit groups, and activation teams to host and coordinate activations.

These activation pods can be hired for activations. You must meet the Activation Pod Booking guidelines ( PDF 241.97KB)

Activation Booster Fund

The Activation Booster Fund is a quick response fund to support community groups to book an activation pod and deliver an activation.

Applicants must meet the assessment and eligibility criteria set out in the Whitehorse Activation Booster Fund Guidelines ( PDF 187.65KB) prior to applying for the Whitehorse Activation Booster Fund.
