Supporting MTC’s commitment to fostering the professional development of Australia’s next mainstage directors.
The MinterEllison Future Directors Initiative creates career pathways for aspiring mainstage theatre directors, contributing to MTC’s ongoing investment in local artists and to the sustainability of the arts sector.
Providing paid placements for assistant directors to work alongside senior theatre directors on an MTC production, the Initiative provides an invaluable opportunity for participants to learn about the process of developing productions for large-scale companies, and will encourage fresh, new voices and perspectives to the stories we tell in the future.
Each assistant director will gain practical experience, hone skills and develop relationships which will support taking the next steps in their careers.
Applications for 2022 are now closed.
MTC and EWF are thrilled to continue the First Stage writers program, providing creative and professional development for five new voices in Australian theatre.
