MTC’s industry-leading Women in Theatre Program provides professional insight and helps create practical pathways for women pursuing careers in the creative industries.
In 2021 the Program will offer two paid Assistant Designer opportunities for female identifying creatives dedicating their professional practice to Sound and Lighting design.
These positions are suitable for practitioners with a minimum of three years’ career experience who are interested in designing for large-scale venues and productions. In addition to the 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 will receive a bursary of $5,500 equivalent of six weeks’ full-time employment.
For both streams, we welcome applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds, particularly First Peoples and those from other culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Interstate applicants are welcome to apply, however priority will be given to Victorian residents.
Applications for 2021 are now closed.
MTC’s Women in Theatre Program is made possible thanks to the generosity of the Women in Theatre Giving Circle.
