FoRT - School Holiday SHow
Thursday, October 03, 2019
11:00 AM - 12:00 NOON
FoRT
Asking for Trouble presents FoRT a circus/physical theatre production, which delves into the art of play and the creation of worlds from everyday objects.

Two strange characters appear hunting for whispers of adventure. In a series of vignettes a couch, table, cushions, sheets and broomsticks transform into rockets, trampolines, cliffs and tents places to explore. Images appear and disappear.

FoRT is full of ridiculous clowning, spectacular acrobatics, poetic visual imagery and celebrates the kind of creative genius that has been known to turn lounge rooms into volcanoes, trees into castles and cardboard boxes into racing cars.

Active Ageing through Gardening
Monday, October 07, 2019
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Changing how we garden means we can continue to enjoy all the health and environmental benefits of a garden as we age or our physical circumstances change.

Why is it that when we finally have time to work on our gardens, our bodies tell us to slow down. Changing a gardens’ design and some of our gardening practices means we can continue to enjoy all the physical, emotional and spiritual benefits from a garden even as our own capability changes. Presenter Richard Rowe from Sustainable Gardening Australia will be on hand to share his knowledge on:
• Why keep/start gardening (at any age!)
• Garden design, maintenance and safety tips for garden enjoyment
• Where and how to access community resources.

Language is in English and Mandarin.

In the swinging 60s Petula repeatedly topped the charts in every corner of the globe with hits like ‘Colour My World’, ‘I Know a Place’, ‘My Love’, ‘Happy Heart’, ‘Don’t Sleep in the Subway’ and, of course, ‘Downtown’. She is the most commercially successful female singer in British chart history!

Commercialising Your New Idea (2 Sessions)
Tuesday, October 15, 2019
to Wednesday, October 30, 2019

9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
Small Business Victoria logo
Everything you need to know to take your innovation or idea from drawing board to market launch.

Get help to assess feasibility, decide its business potential and develop a clear commercialisation strategy over two inspiring workshops led by an experienced innovation and commercialisation expert.

Many great ideas and inventions never get off the ground or become fully-fledged success stories because of a failure to road test their market feasibility, or the cost and time required to get there.

The lesson is simple: to turn an idea into a profitable business you need to plan every stage of how you will take it to market. And that rule applies whether you’ve already invested hours in development or whether your new product or service is yet to be tested.

Get on top of everything you need to consider, from protecting your intellectual property, to market testing, steps to market entry, what sort of finance you’ll need to get there and where to source it.

Be guided by an experienced innovation and commercialisation practitioner with over 30 years’ experience to build a deeper understanding of the business potential of your idea, innovation or invention and get the right support and advice.

This five and a half hour workshop, held over two sessions, includes two free follow-up one-on-one mentoring sessions offering tailored advice to develop a commercialisation strategy that will keep you on track from day one.

Get yourself right up to speed about all the steps that will take your innovation to market, at this essential Small Business Victoria workshop, one of many that have helped businesses in Victoria get started for over 10 years.

The Wine Bluffs - Comedy Show
Thursday, October 24, 2019
8:00 PM - 9:00 PM
WineBluffs
Ever wondered what wine goes best with Fairy Bread? Why hasn’t the ‘Champagne Spider’ caught on? These questions and many more will be inadequately answered by the selfstyled sommeliers of comedy, Damian Callinan & Paul Calleja.

Laying spurious claim to a reputation as renowned wine consultants, the duo, fresh from judging the Fruit Wine Section at The Rockhampton Show, take the audience through the cellar door experience with a comedic twist.

Warning: Performance may contain coarse language, sexual references and material that may offend some patrons. It is recommended for people aged 18 years or older.

Governance Training for Community Groups
Wednesday, October 30, 2019
6:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Governance Training
Facilitator: Non Profit Training

Governance is the system that ensures checks and balances are in place for leaders of not for profit organisations, which help them steer the organisation. That sounds simple yet volunteer non-profit and charitable committees must wade through the complex legal and regulatory environment in which they operate.

Good governance leads to positive committee member experience, proper management of conflicts of interest and risk, good understanding and planning for financial controls and an organisation that thrives even through adversity. Members, funders and donors gain confidence when good governance and transparency are in place and the outcome is greater value delivered to the community.

FREE - BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL - see link below.
