FRIDAY SESSION ONE
CREATE & SUSTAIN COMMUNITY EVENTS PART 1
We take a holistic look at community cultural events, getting them off the ground and
sustaining them through difficult times and seemingly impossible budgets. This session will
take delegates through an overview of the thought process, giving examples of experience
gained by the creation of The Woodford Folk Festival. We look at the preparation of
assembling the crews, building robust structure, creating the cash flows and treading your
way through the early years.
Speaker: Bill Hauritz
FRI The Duck 10.15am
DISCOVERING YOUR INNER ENTREPRENEUR
What is an 'entrepreneur'? Are there personal and professional characteristics shared by
entrepreneurs? If there are, can you learn how to exercise and develop them? An interactive
workshop exploring the increasingly sexy topic of entrepreneurship, separate and distinct
from all the Business School bulls**t.
Speaker: Michael Doneman
FRI The Joinery 10.15am
A SMALL WORLD - MULTICULTURALISM
Although the wider social and political implications of the term multiculturalism continue
to be debated, it is now broadly accepted across the political spectrum that Australia is a
multicultural society. Put simply, this is taken to mean that contemporary Australian society
is culturally and ethnically diverse. John Thompson, NLA, 1996. How can we celebrate the
diverse settled cultures while developing a strong and unique culture in Australia? Do we
create and enjoy genuine community celebrations and authentic inclusion of multicultural
Australia in high profile events?
Speaker: Jill Morgan
FRI The Foundry 10.15am
GOING FOR A SONG: UNDERSTANDING MUSIC
PUBLISHING & APRA
Music publishing royalties are an important source of income for musicians. With music
used in many new ways, it's important to licence the new companies and set appropriate
royalty rates. This session will examine the basic principles of music publishing and how it
works in practice, from a publisher's perspective and from the experience of a songwriter.
Many artists don't realize that they can make some cash from performing their own music,
and many venues, organizers and festivals don't seem to know how APRA helps artists.
Speakers: Ian James, Andy White
FRI The Lakes 10.15am
FRIDAY SESSION TWO
BURNING DOWN THE HOUSE: THE NEW HOUSE
House concerts have traditionally played a large role in democratizing Australia's
performance spaces, with folkies making use of their grass roots supports to get gigs in
towns where the costs and logistics of larger venues make it otherwise unviable. Can we
stoke the home fires again to get our favourite artists to our towns? What does a successful
house concert look like? This brainstorming session writes the manual for the new house
concert, including routes, existing spaces, rules of the house, and how to host.
