PLWA Producer Lab | EOI now open

EOIs to participate in Performing Lines WA’s Producer Lab are now open.

The PLWA Producer Lab is a capacity building and professional development opportunity for emerging, independent producers or self-producing artists in Western Australia, both metro and regionally based.

The Lab will bring together a cohort of 12 emerging producers for a ‘nuts and bolts’ style traineeship in producing, based on Performing Lines’ method of learn-by-practice and next-level thinking.

Delivered online, the first 4 sessions will focus on the practical, leading to a fifth and final 1-on-1 mentorship session. Participating producers will work on their own project idea, applying templates and learnings shared by Performing Lines, to emerge with a prepared project plan ready to pursue by the Lab’s conclusion.

Each producer will be paid $1,000 to participate in the Lab.

Partner organisation with Performing Lines WA in bringing together the cohort and providing the mentorship sessions are CircuitWest, Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company and The Blue Room Theatre. This new initiative is supported by Lotterywest.


The lab is open to emerging, independent producers, self-producing artists, regional arts workers and venue staff keen to produce local works in-house.

We encourage Indigenous, culturally diverse, regional and metro-based practitioners from all artforms to apply.

In order to be eligible, you must:

  • Come with a project idea that you will take to the next stage over the course of the Lab.
  • Be available to participate in all sessions online.
  • Be a WA resident.


The Lab will be delivered online via Zoom.
Each session consists of a 1.5-hour tutorial and a 15min break followed by 45min group discussion.
