(2) Negotiations for the hiring of the Courtyard Studio occur via a variety of means, including phone and face-to-face conversations. It is therefore not possible to quantify the number of “requests” for discounted hiring fees. However, the Canberra Theatre Centre offers sponsorship support for local artists to use the Courtyard Studio – please see further details on this below.

(3) The rate charged for the Courtyard Studio ($242 a day) is already set at a low level in order to facilitate use by local performers and organisations, and so discounted rates are not provided as such. The Canberra Theatre Centre instead provides a range of sponsorship support for local artists to use the Courtyard Studio, in order to curate a program of performing arts and contemporary music in this space. 16 requests for this type of sponsorship have been approved to date for 2017-18, amounting in value to $74,887.

(4) Please see above for the sponsorship support already provided to local performers and organisations. In addition, those hiring the Courtyard Studio are already allowed to operate the bar free of charge.
