PRESENTED BY PERFORMANCE SPACE, SYDNEY GAY AND LESBIAN MARDI GRAS, MOOGAHLIN PERFORMING ARTS AND PACT CENTRE FOR EMERGING ARTISTS

Now in its tenth year, Performance Space’s Queer Development Program builds and strengthens queer creativity and performance in Australia.

Unique in Australia, the Queer Development Program provides opportunities for emerging queer artists to develop their creative skills, performance ideas and industry connections. Through this program, queer artists can build more sustainable practices and explore new ways of making work. Intergenerational and community exchange is at the heart of the Queer Development Program. 

The Queer Development Program (QDP) is a place to develop your creative skills, performance ideas and industry connections through two streams: Stephen Cummins Residency and Queer Workshop Intensive. The QDP is open to artists from across Australia from diverse backgrounds and performance disciplines, and some travel support may be made available to interstate artists. 


Stephen Cummins Residency Recipient 2022

A two-week-long residency for emerging queer artists or collectives to make significant progress towards creating a new performance work. The development process will be overseen and facilitated by an experienced mentor nominated by the artist or with the support of Performance Space.

Queer Workshop Intensive Recipients 2022

A five-day professional development program focused on practical and creative skills for developing queer performance practice. The program will be led by experienced artist facilitators who introduce various methodologies for creating performance in a collaborative environment. The intensive will connect you to an intergenerational community of queer makers and give you the opportunity to present new material to the public as part of Queer Nu Werk

Queer Nu Werk

23rd + 24th June 2022

The Queer Development program culminates in Queer Nu Werk, Performance Space’s much-loved performance night in which Workshop and Residency artists can present their works-in-progress to a live audience of queer community and allies. Queer Nu Werk is a great opportunity to test your ideas with a supportive audience and round out your experience of QDP with some performance and community magic.
