In 2019 Theatre Works launched three public programming streams, a framework to support its creative programming: BECAUSE NOW, BECAUSE HEART, and BECAUSE FUTURE.
BECAUSE NOW: Theatre Works’ commitment to produce and present new works that are enabled and financially supported by Theatre Works.
BECAUSE HEART: Theatre Works’ commitment to enabling and developing more artists and works through subsidised venue hire and in-kind support and mentorship.
BECAUSE FUTURE: Theatre Works’ commitment to training, education, development, thought leadership, and being future focused.
To develop this new framework Theatre Works has led a series of collaborative and consultative public discussions. The process engaged over 150 people including artists, local community members, former board members, staff, and long-term audience members.
“Our ultimate aim to inspire more people to discover, create and love theatre”
“Through our new programs BECAUSE NOW, BECAUSE HEART and BECAUSE FUTURE, Theatre Works can become more fully engaged with the communities that surround us. Ultimately we want to embody the many lived experiences of our community and celebrate our complex cultural tapestry in everything we do.”
“The call out is open to artists, companies, writers, directors, makers, and performers, we’re offering different platforms and opportunities within each program,” says General Manager, Dianne Toulson.
Applications are now open for Theatre Works 2020 BECAUSE HEART program.
