La Mama Pathways 2024

La Mama Pathways is designed to offer multiple entry points towards career development and capacity building in the performing arts.

This program broadly offers opportunities for skill building, access, engagement, development and outreach in line with La Mama’s primary vision and mission.

Pathways aims to open doors and empower the next generation of artists and arts-workers, sharing La Mama’s legacy, whilst fostering our future creatives and cultural ecosystem.

The grant goes towards supporting the following:

WRITING INTENSIVE is a theatre writing series in partnership with Australian Plays Transform (APT). Entry to this program will be via application, and an external selection committee will decide the final cohort.

EMERGE is an open access program for theatre makers aged 18 – 26.

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SERIES offering open access, free professional development on topics to be determined by our community.

MENTORSHIPS will be offered for producers, stage managers, and other creatives.

DRAMATURGICAL SUPPORT will offer one on one sessions with experienced dramaturgs for selected writers who submit scripts to our open, free script appraisal service.

CONNECT will offer the opportunity for networking as well as consultation to shape future programs. These sessions are free and open access events, bookings are required. 

Watch this space and stay up to date through our e-news for more Pathways announcements in 2024.
