The Resident Artists program is a year-long incubator for early career theatre makers aged 18- 25 who are passionate about creating new works, and dedicated to challenging their artistic practice.
These artists will work with our Artistic Director and guest artists to participate in a program of creative developments, performances and individual projects, whilst being embedded in the life of our company and contributing to its artistic vision. Our Resident Artists will be ambitious young creatives ready to push their practice and careers to the next level.
Each Resident receives a stipend for their participation in the program to allow them to dedicate time to the development of their craft. They will also receive an additional budget allocation for professional development activities, such as creating a project, attending a training program, or collaborating with other artists. We will provide office and creative development space, networking opportunities and mentorships.
Each artist will receive one-on-one support from the Artistic Director to determine an individual program to meet their specific needs. They will meet weekly as a collective, with flexibility around other work, projects or study.
The Resident Artists will provide creative support to our major productions, have an active presence within our workshop programs, and participate in our community engagement activities. This program is focussed on developing the skills young emerging artists require to have a sustainable career in the arts, and offering dedicated support to their practice.
Our Resident Artists program is generously supported by the Seaborn, Broughton & Walford Foundation and Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres.
