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

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. Performance Space encourages applications from First Nations and POC artists, transgender and non-binary artists and emerging performance artists of all ages.
