Creative Opportunities

The Art House Creatives

Artist Creative Development

We support research, ideation, and development of new work by independent emerging and mid-career artists/groups by commissioning, developing, and producing new contemporary theatre works. 

The Art House takes a staged approach from idea to performance and peer to peer support is given across each stage to ensure the project goals are achieved. 

In collaboration with local industry partners The Art House also supports the development of visual artists, writers, film, and digital media creators. Our facilities can be used for activities such as script readings, writing workshops, digital media presentations, launches, and exhibitions.
