LPA partners with Sydney Fringe Festival for Producer Workshop Series

LPA partners with Sydney Fringe Festival for Producer Workshop Series

As part of its commitment to provide support and skills development for the producers of tomorrow, LPA is partnering with Sydney Fringe Festival to deliver an 8 part series of Producer Workshops.

The first workshop on budgeting skills for the independent arts will be this coming Monday (27 April 2015), and the series will run every Monday through to 2 August, with the Sydney Fringe Festival itself running throughout September.

The workshops have been designed to provide detailed hands-on advice to guide participants through producing an event and will offer resources, case study examples, and an opportunity to network with, and hear from industry experts. The workshop series has been scheduled to align with key Sydney Fringe Festival dates as a means of providing support if participants are working towards target deadlines.

The Producer Workshops are free to Sydney Fringe Festival Artists and $10 per workshop for LPA Members and the general public.
