Dancehouse stands on what always was and always will be Aboriginal land. We pay our respects to the traditional owners of this land, the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation, to their Elders past and present, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

Budgets for Beginners — Geoffrey Masters

Friday 22 July, 1—3pm

Whether it is a provisional budget for a funding application, a show, or a tour, this workshop will have you covered with everything you need to know about budgets and more! Learn great template making and formatting tips, plus all questions you need to ask yourself when preparing a budget, including artist fees, production locations, insurances, contingencies and more.


Production Skills — Bec Etchell 

Friday 22 July, 4—5:30pm

This introduction to Production Management will cover all your technical/production questions – from schedules to risk management and how to develop and write the technical rider for your work. We will also discuss the process for when/how to engage other artists (Lighting Designers, Sound Designers, Set/Costume Designers) and how to ensure that your new work is presented in a stress-free, seamless way. In budget, on time and to the highest standard. 


Admin Basics for Artists — Insite Arts

Saturday 23 July, 1—3pm

The administrative side of working as an artist can be daunting and confusing. In this 2 hour workshop, learn the basic (but ever changing) skills surrounding invoicing, insurances and superannuation, and ask the questions you’ve never asked but wanted the answers to. How to get an ABN? Should you register for GST? What type of insurance do you need? All this and more. 


Producing Fundamentals for Artists — Insite Arts 

Sunday 24 July, 1—3pm

From working with dedicated producers to doing it yourself, this workshop will explore what a producer is, what they do and the unique relationship between artist and producer. Asking the question “when do you need a producer”, the workshop also aims to guide you through the basic foundations of self-producing as an artist. Join Insite Arts directors Jason Cross and Victoria Raywood as they share their combined 50 years’ experience in producing for live performance and dance in this 2 hour workshop for Next Stages.
