In 2020, MTC continues its industry-leading Women in Theatre Program to help create practical pathways for women pursuing careers in a range of disciplines from production to artistic and executive management. The 2020 Program consists of two streams:

WOMEN IN THEATRE CORE PROGRAM

Applications for the 2020 Women in Theatre Core Program are now closed.

TECHNICAL DESIGN

This part of the program offers an opportunity for a further two (2) women dedicating their professional practice to Lighting or Sound Design, and offers two design associate placements on MTC 2020 productions. This is suitable for practitioners with a minimum of four years’ career experience who are interested in designing for large-scale venues and productions. In addition to the associate design placement, this professional development opportunity will provide insight into the processes, considerations and operations of a mainstage company through one on one meetings with MTC staff, at mutually convenient times.

Successful applicants to the Technical Design stream will receive a bursary of $6500 (inc. Super where applicable).

Applications for the Technical Design stream of the program will open in January 2020.

MTC’s Women in Theatre Program is made possible thanks to the generosity of the Women in Theatre Giving Circle.
