This week, Performing Lines WA launched their Producer Lab series on Zoom, a five-week online course led by Producer Jen Leys to strengthen the sector by upskilling and increasing the pool of independent producers in Western Australia.
This is the last initiative of our Lotterywest funded Creative Hub. We had an overwhelming response to our EOI, receiving 40 applications. In the end, 15 mid-career self-producing artists and emerging producers from across the State were selected, bringing together a very interesting cohort.
Over the next five weeks, participants will learn the nuts and bolts of producing by focusing on a specific project idea. Drawing on Performing Lines’ 35 years experience in developing, producing and touring new Australian works, the participants will learn the fundamentals of planning, budgeting, marketing, community engagement and performance presentation.
Each participant will be paid $1,000 and receive one-on-one mentorship with one of our partner organisations, including CircuitWest, Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company and The Blue Room Theatre.
Meet the participants and find out more about their individual project.
