Associate Artist Program

For Emerging Artists

In 2022, Theatre Works continues its ground-breaking Associate Artist Program dedicated to emerging artists, giving them the opportunities to engage in their artistic process and extend their professional networks.

Each year, the program attaches artists from various disciplines to a Theatre Works production in line with their field of enquiry to give them invaluable, direct experience with practising established theatre-makers.


The Associate Artist Program features masterclasses and workshops with high-profile artists and a direct focus on developing each associate’s own practice and career paths as individual artists. This program provides one of the few opportunities in Australia for directors, makers and emerging creative producers to acquire the skills and contacts necessary to make the transition into the professional theatre industry.


Closely mentored by Artistic Associate Steven Mitchell Wright with guest sessions from a diverse array of industry professionals and experts, Q and As, and practical units from a cross section of industry topics including producing, grants writing, budgets, financial models, touring, marketing and PR.


A public, nation-wide callout for applications will be issued in December 2021.
