Performance Space has been supporting artists to fearlessly test ideas, ask questions, develop ambitious new work and share that work with national and international audiences for over 35 years.
Throughout the year we deliver a range of development, residency, mentorship and laboratory programs that support artists to extend their practice and test new ways of working.
Discover more about our programs below!

QUEER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Established in 2013, our Queer Development Program supports emerging LGBTQIA+ artists from across the nation and supports them to develop new work, engage in critical discussion, nurture their creative networks, increase their skills and celebrate difference within a safe and supportive environment.
