Space Wanted!

Space_Wanted.png

Leadership Victoria is seeking a workshop space that can accommodate our Community Learning Days and Leading in Community Workshop programming for the 2017-18 school year (September through June). Our preference is to work with a single venue for the year, if possible.

Read on for more details about what we're seeking, and our budget and dates.

Venue Specifications

Space

  • Minimum 1,200 square feet – increased for any pillars or architectural elements that may obstruct views or limit floor usage. Prefer 1,400-1,600 square feet.
  • Additional break-out spaces are useful for some of our workshop elements. If no other spaces are available on-site, we would look for more square footage.

Furniture

  • Furniture that is moveable and supports collaboration and group work
  • 6-10 round or rectangle tables
  • Approximately 50 chairs
  • Flip chart stands

Environment

  • Some source of daylight into the room
  • Ability to close doors or draw dividers to create an acoustic barrier (quiet learning space)
  • Separated from noise-generating areas such as cafeterias, entrance hallways
  • Appropriate HVAC controls to allow us to moderate the temperature in the room

Food / Catering Facilities

  • Sink / kitchen counter space available for coffee/tea preparation (coffee-maker and kettle ideal)
  • Allow us to bring in our own food/catering service, as we have a limited budget and often self-cater aspects of morning/afternoon snacks and lunches

Amenities

  • Washroom facilities to accommodate groups up to 40.
  • Option to store a file box with our facilitation tools, and a case with our flip chart paper, onsite in between sessions.

Internet / Technology

  • WiFi network available at no cost to attendees
  • Power connections available
  • Optional: screen and projector that we can connect to with a laptop

Parking / Transportation

  • Proximity to a regular bus route (within 10 minutes walk)
  • Parking for full-day participants available on-site (or within a 5 minute walk) – approx. 25 cars
  • Wheelchair accessible building & room

Budget

Our budget is $150 per day for our Community Learning Days, and $100 for a half-day for the Leading in Community Workshops. If space is complimentary, contingent on using the on-site catering services, our budget for catering is $20 per person to include morning and afternoon snacks (muffins/fruit) and a sandwich/veggie lunch. 

We are also open to providing one paid tuition seat in the Community Leadership Development Program (value $3000) in exchange for the venue rental for the Community Learning Days.
