Event description

Description

Connect Sydney is an initiative of the City of Sydney which aims to build the capacity of community organisations through the provision of free event management training. It also aims to provide an opportunity for a wide variety of organisations to network and share their experiences.

If you’re planning to run a community event and want to improve your knowledge and skills around legal obligations of event management, this is the training for you.

Delivered in partnership with the Arts Law Centre of Australia - Australia’s only national community legal centre for the arts - this training will consist of a face to face workshop that explores hypothetical case studies and group exercises, designed to contextualise complex content, and break down key information into core principles.

The morning session will cover the legal issues that surround the creative aspects of an event, such as:

  • Who is Arts Law and how we can help
    • Intellectual property: Copyright, Moral rights, Trade Marks
    • Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property issues
    • Performers’ rights and filming, sound recording and photographing at events (including performers and by standers)
    • Brief look at agreements with artists/performers: e.g. licensing copyright
    • Brief look at censorship and classification (important for film events and events with audio visual content)

The afternoon session will cover the legal issues associated with the business aspects of an event, such as:

  • Responsibility: Liability, risk management and insurance
  • Engaging other people: employment, volunteers, paying tax, OH&S
  • Venue, food and alcohol, public safety
  • Brief look at contracts e.g. venue hire contracts
  • Brief look at fund raising requirements
  • Brief look at privacy regarding information of participants and volunteers
  • Brief look at working with children
  • Question and answer time

Support material included: Answers for Artists booklets and Arts Insurance Handbooks will be provided to all participants.

Training sessions are limited to 50 participants so make sure you register early.
