General Information: 

We like to plan a long way ahead if possible.   What dates were you thinking of??  We get a much better response rate when we have time to get the word out and about on all our marketing channels.   So pre-planning is a good idea. 


We have two ways that we can work with someone like yourself.     You choose what suits you the best.


1. You run your course, but we do most of the advertising and promoting, on social media and newsletters as well as our website.   We make up all the graphic design, ie flyers and posters.  We also take all the bookings and payments on your behalf and then pay you the profit after costs (including room hire), at the end of the course.  This is called a Incubator Managed Booking. There is an admin fee of $150.00 on this option, Plus the cost of the room, see 2.  When THE INCUBATOR has received an invoice from you then payment will be made directly to your bank account. 


2.  You pay for the use of the room only and we still help with advertising and promoting as we want your course to be successful.  But you do all the bookings and payments and pay us a set rate for the room.  This will be $75.00 per time block (see below, we don’t have an hourly rate).  This is a Venue Only booking.


We MAY have to access some of your photos, text and titles on Social Media to ensure that they fit with the vibe/feel of our brand.  But we can work that out between us.  With a Incubator Managed Booking, we need a long run up, ie start advertising (after we receive your completed form) at least 5 clear  weeks in advance of the start date of the course/workshop.

  2. Artery Register – this has to be filled out for every single course in order to cover all the health and safety regulations.
