Cultivating and mentoring artists is at the forefront of our practice. In 2023, we continue to offer a number of artist centred activities extending our commitment to the independent sector in WA. Our PATHWAYS PROGRAM is an integral way for us to support emerging and established WA artists by sharing our resources and passion for the creation of dance work with our community.

IN.STUDIO, IN.HOUSE, IN.RESIDENCE and IN.CONVERSATION encourage discussion and development of the choreographic practice of WA dance makers.

IN.STUDIO: 100 free hours of studio space, open to all WA artists.

IN.HOUSE: $15,000 choreographic commission to one artist, 76 hours of free studio space prior to production week.

IN.RESIDENCE: $50,000 choreographic commission to one artist for further development or presentation of work.

IN.CONVERSATION: Facilitated panel conversations held in season after Friday evening performances.

All applications for PATHWAYS PROGRAM opportunities will be reviewed by the Artistic Programming Panel, led by Artistic Director, Raewyn Hill.
