ABOUT TO THE FRONT
To The Front is a workshop program designed exclusively for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) and First Nations artists in WA. It will upskill and connect aspiring artists working, or wanting to work, in live performance. Successful participants will be paid to learn from some of WA’s finest practitioners, as well as receiving masterclasses from artists all over Australia. To The Front will also provide tickets to shows, memberships to arts organisations, backstage tours of Perth’s venues, and more.
After the workshops, participants can nominate to test out their new craft in a friendly, fun Practice Lab at Subiaco Arts Centre. Writers will be allocated performers, and will write a short performance piece for their cast from Monday - Friday. Over Saturday and Sunday, the Performers and Makers will work to stage the short pieces; mentors will be on hand to provide guidance to all participants throughout the week. On Sunday evening an invitation-only performance of all the new pieces will be held for friends, family, and select industry members.
