Teaching Artist Program 2020

Professional Development for theatre artists who are interested in developing or building on their teaching skills.

Teaching artists are a vital part of the performing arts landscape, sharing their skills, passion and knowledge with the community, young people and emerging performers. Queensland Theatre is committed to ensuring that there are skilled teaching artists in our schools and wider community, not just for our own programs, but also for the sector as a whole.

In 2020, Queensland Theatre will launch a new initiative, the Teaching Artist Program, a professional development program for eight Queensland based artists who are interested in developing or building on their teaching skills. The program will offer on-site intensives, year-long mentoring and the opportunity to shadow more experienced teaching artists. The Education, Youth and Regional Engagement team at Queensland Theatre will facilitate the program, joined by an array of experienced teaching artists and arts education practitioners.
