Course aim

This course will introduce students to the history and development of festivals, their management and basic operations and provide a solid foundation for the Festivals major.

Course content

This course examines the festival as a site in which the cultural and the civic interact. Through select historic and contemporary case-studies such as the City of Adelaide, students will be equipped with an understanding of the different models of festivals and their funding, different modes of industry networking and audience engagement. With particular focus on urban design and community, the relationship between festivals and the city will be spotlighted.
