Fabulous news from Belvoir that we thought we’d share:
25A Announced: In 2018 Belvoir will launch a new independent theatre program which will see the beloved Downstairs Theatre given to teams of artists for free.
“This is the lynchpin of our support for independent and emerging artists,” said Flack.“There’s nothing so valuable when you’re learning your trade as putting on a show. But it can be difficult and expensive to find a space to do that.”
Other initiatives include:
Artist Ticket Program
Starting in 2018 Belvoir will offer artists $20 tickets to selected performances of all shows in the season.
Andrew Cameron Fellowship
Also announced was the inaugural Andrew Cameron Fellowship for 2018. Supported by, and in honour of former Belvoir Chair, Andrew Cameron AM, the Fellowship will enable the establishment of a new Associate Artist position at Belvoir to support an emerging artistic leader in their career.
