Conditions of hire

Sketch of the Dome

Approval to hire the Shine Dome is given on the basis that the hirer will not, in any publicity, imply the Academy’s support for the hirer or the event. Specifically, no reference should be made in publicity to the Australian Academy of Science or any form of that name.

All references to the building in publicity should ONLY be to: The Shine Dome, Gordon Street, Canberra ACT 2601

Photos of the Shine Dome for publicity purposes related to events are available from the Venue Coordinator.

If the Academy has reason to believe that any function may adversely affect its reputation or the security of its staff or property, it reserves the right to withdraw its permission to use the building without liability other than refund of any deposit.

The Shine Dome is a heritage listed building and therefore there are limitations to the fixing of posters, banners etc to walls. Hirers are asked to respect the heritage aspects of the building, and to consult with the Events Manager in this matter.

Hirers are requested to emphasise in their publicity and at the commencement of their function that food and drink is not to be taken into the Ian Wark Theatre.

The Academy reserves the right to recover costs for any damage to the premises or equipment or loss of equipment occurring during the period of the hirer’s occupancy.
