Our Associate Artists Program is BACK and it's BIGGER THAN EVER. This boutique program provides one of the only free-to-participant opportunities in Australia for early to mid career directors, makers and creative producers to acquire the skills and contacts necessary to build sustainable careers in the professional independent theatre industry.
“Having steady creative guidance, access to diverse minds and a stellar lineup of industry professionals has been invaluable. Being part of the vigorous Theatre Works community is a deeply fulfilling and fortifying experience. I cannot recommend it highly enough.” Amy May Nunn - Artistic Director, Dirty Pennies Theatre Project and 2020 Theatre Works Associate Artist
"Theatre Works’ Associate Artist Program is a dedicated and heart-filled program that is incredibly encouraging for emerging artists. It beautifully tackled all the questions I had about managing life as a freelance artist - with fab guest speakers, practice pitches and finally understanding grant budgets. It was such a pleasure getting to know my cohort and seeing all the work they have been doing since the program." Alanah Guiry - Freelance Theatre Director and 2020 Theatre Works Associate Artist
The Associate Artists, over a 6 month period, will undertake a series of intensives with seminars, Q and As, and practical interactive units covering a broad array of industry topics while refining their enquiry and professional identity. This project has been made possible through the generous support of a small group of arts patrons who value the importance of art making and different models of theatre production.
