This subject investigates events of varying scale, and identifies their contribution as a potential key driver of growth and economic development of businesses, cities and communities. It analyses the social, cultural and environmental impacts of events on destinations and communities. It also examines the relevance, value and appropriateness of events. Activities will support analysing types of events, venues, themes, target markets, relevance to communities and how events contribute to the mixed economy. You will examine approaches to conceptualising an event of relevance for a specific audience, prepare a simulated event bid, engage in group presentations, and complete an observation of an event to analyse its design components. These activities and tasks will provide you with opportunities to identify key skills and how you may apply this learning in the future to event design.
This subject introduces learning through practice by exposing you to authentic learning experiences. These experiences are placed at the centre of learning and assessment, so you have the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours necessary to respond to industry, community and/or global needs.
