Theatre Works

Theatre Works - The future is here now!


Theatre Works has been a vibrant creative hub for independent artists for 40 years, cultivating artist development programs that enrich the arts ecology, and nurtures challenging, innovative artists.

Right now, society is experiencing a huge time of change, and so are we. Bringing people together is at the heart of what we do.

Artists are champions of innovation and we need your support to help independent creatives do what they do best - make art. In 2022, Theatre Works has an abundance of creative development initiatives that are currently underfunded. Your support will go towards one of our following initiatives: 

- First Stories Festival: 
A new creative writing festival specifically for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. 

- She Writes Collective:
A program specifically created for female-identifying playwrights at varying stages in their playwriting practices.

- RADAR (Regional Artist Development and Accommodation Residencies):
A residency program that provides space, accommodation, technical support, artistic mentorship and cash for regional artists to come and develop their performance practice in St Kilda. 

- Technical Summer School:
Workshops in sound, lighting and set building for budding theatre technicians. 

Making theatre is a radical act of hope.
Thank you for considering your investment in future generations of Australian artists.
