Organising your own event:
The key to a successful event is to PLAN the event carefully and well in advance (purpose of event and target audience, who can help, best time and place, clear goals and objectives for event).
PROMOTING the event to reach your target audience using flyers, posters, billboards, local newspapers, newsletters, radio and internet.
RESOURCING- what activities are involved, what resources will it require, who could you work in partnership with?
BUDGETS & CONTRACTS - set out all expected expenditure and income sources and frame your budget around these and then stick to it! Ensure smooth running in your relationships with sponsors, funders, contractors, suppliers and artists by having all obligations/responsibilities set out clearly in writing.
