Melbourne Theatre Company Scholarship Program 2018

Published on Wednesday, 7 February 2018 at 12:00:00 AM

Melbourne Theatre Company, in partnership with the Wilin Centre for Indigenous Arts and Cultural Development, is offering a one-of-a-kind learning opportunity to young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people interested in a career in the performing arts. 

The program is made up of a series of workshops that explore performance skills, writing for the stage, technical and design aspects of creating a production and how to develop a marketing campaign. It will then end with a short performance by the group at Southbank Theatre for family and friends. 

Participants will also see a variety of live performances including comedy, dance, musical and theatre shows and have the opportunity to meet a range of industry professionals (actors, writers, directors and designers) to learn more about potential career pathways. 

Program participants will be supported by Indigenous teaching artists, mentors and the Wilin Centre where they can receive cultural support and assistance in making an application to the Victorian College of the Arts and The University of Melbourne, if they wish to explore further study.
