CALL FOR PROPOSALS: QUEER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

PRESENTED BY PERFORMANCE SPACE & SYDNEY GAY AND LESBIAN MARDI GRAS

Performance Space’s Queer Development Program is designed to foster and strengthen the culture of queer creativity and performance in Australia.

This year, we are thrilled to partner with Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras to expand the Queer Development program, offering opportunities for more artists from a wider range of practices from across Australia to participate in the program.

The Queer Development Program is designed for queer artists to develop their creative skills, performance ideas and industry connections, in order to build sustainable practices and to explore new ways of making work. Intergenerational and community exchange is at the heart of the program: Performance Space and Mardi Gras offer our decades-long histories championing queer artists to in order to increase their recognition and representation within Australian contemporary performance. Presented at PACT Centre for Emerging Artists the Queer Development Program is deeply embedded in Sydney’s contemporary performance community.

The Queer Development program includes two open-call opportunities for artists:
