Banyule's series of professional development opportunities for artists.

Banyule's professional development series is presented by Pinpoint - Banyule's Creative Map.

Focusing on both the conceptual and the practical – with workshops and forums delivered by industry, peer and specialist practitioners – this series provides valuable support to Banyule's creative community in developing and maintaining a professional practice.

Bookings now open for Pinpoint Professional Development - Event Management Workshop 

When: Saturday 15 June 2019, 10.30am - 12.30pm

Where: Banyule City Council, Level 4, 1 Filntoff Street, Greensborough 3088 (above WaterMarc)

If you are thinking about producing any type of arts event, from concerts to exhibitions to festivals, then this workshop is for you!

No matter what size or type of event you are planning, there are some basics that you’ll need to know to ensure you can deliver a safe and well-managed event. This session will help you know where to start with your event planning, what to look out for, and where to go for further information.

The workshop will run for two hours, with plenty of time for questions. Dr Clare Lade from Latrobe University will present on the basics of planning and producing events, and representatives from Banyule City Council will cover the Council’s event permit application process.
