We're offering new opportunities through our pioneering HWY program to support local theatre-makers and boost artist employment in the state. The new HWY offering will provide six paid opportunities, including a 12-month commission for a local playwright or group of writers, a 6-month opportunity for interstate collaborators to develop a new work or an existing idea, and four 3-month development opportunities for artists or companies to seed new work for any one of La Boite’s spaces.
Applications will be open from now until Monday, 13 July 2020, with the application requirements and process differing per opportunity.
Successful applicants will receive a fee for their work, as well as comprehensive artistic, producing, administrative and production support during the development period. La Boite is offering $15,000 for the 12-month playwright commission, $5,000 for the 6-month interstate collaboration and $2,500 per 3-month development opportunity for artists or companies.
La Boite is committed to ensuring access to our programs. If you have access requirements, please let us know when you submit your application and we will do our best to accommodate specific needs.
