Mentorship for Aspiring Producers and Theatre Makers

We are looking for four aspiring producers/theatre makers. You may be at the very beginning of your career, and looking for guidance and opportunities. Or you may have an idea already which you are looking to develop and get off the ground. Either way, we’d love to help you find the support you need to make your work possible.

To apply, please submit your CV and a one page cover letter detailing the kind of support you require and why you think we would be a good match for you.

We’d love to get a sense of the kind of work you are interested in making as well as the work you enjoy watching. Please send an example of your past work if you have it, but no trouble if not – this is not a requirement.

No prior training is required to apply.

The mentorship will include:

  • 5 x contact sessions (1 hour)
  • Ongoing support over 6 months

Deadline: May 21st, 5pm.

Please send your submissions to:
