Queer Development Program 2017

 

Performance Space’s QUEER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM is a suite of initiatives that aim to expand and energise performance practice in Sydney. The program brings together emerging and established artists to develop new skills, new works and make new connections that further the expression of queer identities through performance.

The QUEER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM has three strands that work together to support queer artists of all levels of skill and experience:

  1. Stephen Cummins Residency

The Stephen Cummins Residency provides the opportunity for artists working in the realm of queer performance to make significant strides towards staging a new work. It is a two-week mentored program that is technically supported and provides a fee for the successful applicant. It will take place at PACT Centre for Emerging Artists 7 – 18 March, 2017.

Applications due: Midnight, Monday 6 February, 2017
