Q Theatre Lab '20 Applications
Q THEATRE LAB is Q Theatre’s annual artist residency program. The residency is designed to make creative space and time for the development of dynamic projects at an early stage of their conception. Projects are selected through an open callout process and successful applicants will receive financial assistance, work-space as well as technical and dramaturgical support for dedicated creative development.
Q THEATRE LAB is based on a commitment to supporting the development of independent artists and projects in the local Western Sydney area and the vibrancy that occurs as a result.
Building on the successes of previous residency programs, Q Theatre invites artists or groups of artists with a passion for a creative Penrith to apply for a Q THEATRE LAB ’20 Residency.
In 2020, we are looking for works that have a connection, relevance or ability to engage with St Marys and its community. This is a feature of the selection criteria, should you wish to talk though this with us with any questions or how your project may resonate with community of St Marys, please contact Nick Atkins by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
