Help us, help emerging artists.
At Darlinghurst Theatre Company we are passionate about finding new ways to help young emerging artists. It is vital to foster the next generation of innovative Australian theatre makers and to help provide career opportunities in what is a difficult and very competitive industry.
We are therefore seeking to run a Darlinghurst Theatre Company Mentorship Program for up and coming Directors, Writers, Set & Costume Designers, Lighting Designers and Sound Designers.
Emerging artists will be attached to our productions as assistants to established leading artists. This will provide emerging artists with invaluable professional production experience including a production credit such as an Assistant Director or Assistant Designer. Professional production experience and stage credits are so vital to an emerging artists’ career. They literally help artists gain further employment. Professional production experience is invaluable to an emerging artist’s career path. It helps to open doors and begins the development of life long associations.
In the recruitment of participants we will employ our gender parity policy and equal opportunity for artists from diverse cultural backgrounds. We will provide six mentorships over the next year.
We are seeking one off donations towards our Mentorship Program. Contributions will go towards artists’ fees and production costs.
We are already on our way, and so far we have raised $5,000. Our target is $30,000.
Please consider getting involved and help support the essential development of young artists for which you will be credited in our theatre programs for a year.
