Opportunities October Mega Edition

It’s Opportunities time, and we have a huge selection of grants, residencies, awards and scholarships here, including international placements, mentorships and heaps more to help set you up for 2020 and beyond. On cover duties this month is Cecile Lucas, our Marketing Coordinator in Perth!

 

We want to hear from you!

Performing Lines is committed to supporting artists in a variety of different ways, and the Opportunities blog grew out of our desire to share info we receive through our contacts around Australia and overseas.

Do you find it helpful? Is there anything else you’d like to see more of? Should we keep doing it? Email Thom at marketing@performinglines.org.au and let us know what you think!
