Do you have a developed idea that after rehearsal, will be ready for an audience?


2–29 August 2021
EOIs have closed

We’re offering four weeks in the Courtyard Studio for a production that is ready for rehearsal and presentation. You’ll have two weeks in the rehearsal room, a tech week, and five performances.

We’ll take care of all venue and associated costs, including technical, box office, and front- of-house staff. We’ll cover artist fees for up to four artists. We’ll take care of the marketing and publicity for your presentation, and you’ll have producing support from our programming and technical teams.


The bold and compelling artistic voices of the performance makers of Australia’s Capital deserve to be heard, to be nurtured, to be amplified, and to be respected as vibrant contributors to the national cultural conversation.

We’re reinvigorating our commitment to supporting the development and presentation of new performance work. This multi-year approach to the development of original, contemporary performance made by Canberra’ best professional performances makers will support teams of experienced artists who have a demonstrated and consistent connection to the Canberra community.

We want to explore new ideas, ignite new collaborations and partnerships, and to present these new performances in our venue.

In addition to offering access to The Courtyard Studio, we’ll provide mentorships and professional development opportunities during this time in our venue.
