Case study Tiny opera Company The history of the Tiny Opera Company Tiny Opera Company operates in a rural NSW town. Colleen Starr started the company after moving to the small town from Sydney in the late 1970s. Colleen wanted to bring the wonder and entertainment of theatre-based performances to rural NSW. Her vision was to create a regional theatre that emulated the Sydney Opera House; making theatre both accessible and valued in her town and the surrounding community. Stellas idea and passion was shared by a wealthy landowner in the area who donated $2.3 million to support the purchase of a venue and the ongoing operation of the theatre. $1.3 million of this was invested in a trust which has been added to over the years that Tiny Opera Company has generated a profit. Colleen Starr bought an old town hall that had been built in the early 1900s. The hall is listed on the State Heritage Register in NSW. Basic interior renovations were carried out to the stage, three dressing rooms, kitchen, break room, meeting room, food counter and ticketing booth including: painting internal walls installing wall-mounted radiators throughout the theatres, dressing rooms and break room installing a dishwasher and oven in the kitchen installing a wood heater in the meeting room. Assessment Task 1 BSBSUS501 Develop policy and procedure for sustainability Tiny Opera Company has staged regular performances in the theatre from the 1970s onwards. Ten years ago, the Tiny Opera Company built a small office building to serve the growing number full time staff.

You have been hired as the new environment officer at Tiny Opera Company after responding to the following job advertisement. Sustainability project officer position Tiny Opera Company is taking a new direction to become a leading practitioner of sustainable practices in the performing arts industry. As part of this direction, Tiny Opera Company has created an exciting new position for a sustainability project officer. You will be motivated, enthusiastic about sustainability and ready to bring an innovative approach to Tiny Opera Company practices. You will work within our small team at Tiny Opera to review work practices, especially the use of costume, props, lighting and facilities, as well as communications, and equal employment opportunity practices. You will be required to develop best practice models to increase sustainability practices across the organisation. This may involve training and educating staff through professional development, company newsletters and other similar approaches. We are looking for a highly skilled individual capable of reviewing technical documents and legislation in order to develop plain language policy, internal memos and external publicity materials. The project officer is also required to develop materials to inform and educate audiences about Tiny Opera Companys sustainable activities and encourage participation in activities and practices that lead to better environmental outcomes. You are inducted by Nic Tan, the Business Manager of Tiny Opera Company, who gives you an overview of how the company wants to approach sustainability. Assessment Task 1 BSBSUS501 Develop policy and procedure for sustainability In the last six months, Tiny Opera Company has been focusing on becoming a more sustainable operation. Nic Tan has reviewed some of the organisations operations and has observed that resource use in the theatre is not aligned with sustainable work practices being promoted at Tiny Opera Company. Nic realises that this is at least partly due to the policy and procedure documents not reflecting industry requirements or reflecting Tiny Opera Companys aim to increase sustainability across its operations. Nic wants you to update the sustainability policy to specifically reflect the sustainability aims of the business. Nic wants to focus on the following areas: minimising resource use using resources more efficiently reducing toxic material and hazardous chemical use employing life cycle management approaches implementing a sustainability continuous improvement strategy. Nic Tan also mentions that they need something in the policy that talks about measuring resource use and reviewing resource records periodically because thats the main way that Tiny Opera Company will be monitoring their progress towards minimising resource use. Tiny Opera Company has made an effort to improve sustainability by pursuing some new sustainability initiatives: programming of all reverse-cycle air conditioners in the office to automatically switch off at 4.45 pm every day: currently air-conditioners are manually switched off it is the responsibility of the last staff member leaving each day to turn them all off this is rarely done, and most commonly all air-conditioners are left running 24 hours per day. better sorting of recyclable paper from general rubbish using low VOC (volatile organic compound) paint when painting sets for performances to protect the health and safety of workers. Tiny Opera Sustainability Policy Tiny Opera has a commitment to minimising environmental impact by: using resources wisely encouraging visitors to consider sustainability focusing on appropriate management principles. We seek to improve social, economic, cultural and environmental benefits in our decision-making. Assessment Task 1 BSBSUS501 Develop policy and procedure for sustainability Nic Tan provides you with the budget for the previous few years as well as projections for next year. Nic points out that the marketing budget has already been increased to allow for marketing the new Tiny Opera Company sustainability initiatives. Nic Tan envisages that you will create sustainability policy options that fit within amount that is currently being generated as profit. Nic Tan points out that there is quite a fluctuation in the amount of profit generated, so you should use it as a rough guide. Who knows, says Nic Tan, with an innovative sustainability plan, maybe youll even be able to generate some additional income by bringing bigger audiences to the Tiny Opera Company in support of our new, sustainable direction. Sustainability is a long-term goal at Tiny Opera Company, but Nic would like to see a couple of actions implemented within the next 12 months.
