Activity Details
 

(Thanks so much for your support! “ Outdoor Event Planning Workshop” is full.)

 

 

Co-organized by West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) and Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association (HKAAA)

 

To attract new audiences and engage the community, arts groups, big and small, are increasingly putting emphasis on presenting outdoor events of various scale. What are the key issues to be considered when planning and organizing street arts presentations?

 

Sydney Festival is known internationally for its outdoor event programme: from the Festival First Night, and the iconic Domain Concert Series which is now in its 36th year, to tone off events in quirky locations.

 

A workshop co-presented by the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority and the Hong Kong Arts Administrators Association, Mr. John Bayley, Head of Production of Sydney Festival, will talk about how he managed the logistics challenges when presenting outdoor events, including solving the dilemma of budgets and staffing which is especially relevant to smaller arts groups to achieve the best creative outcome for street shows.

 

Other topics to be covered:

  • Choosing outdoor event sites and gaining permission to present the events
  • Key issues to consider when producing an outdoor event
  • Staffing structure and how to expand it from planning to operational
