Creative Opportunities


Creative development – live performance

The Art House supports the development of new work by independent emerging and mid-career artists/groups by commissioning, developing, and producing new contemporary theatre works In-House. 

Offering a staged approach from idea to performance. Peer to peer support will be given across each stage to ensure the project goals are achieved. 

A development process may include the creative development of a new work with actors/performers/musicians/dancers/director/choreographer/circus/dramaturg/mentor and/or consultant, that can culminate in a work-in-progress showing (however this is not a requirement of the creative development program)

Opportunities are either by invitation, or via our EOI support application. The selection process is undertaken by members of TAH artistic team and an external industry professional.

Art forms supported in these residencies include but are not limited to:

  • Theatre
  • Physical Theatre
  • Choreography/Dance
  • Circus
  • Cabaret

Creative support – visual/digital/writing

In collaboration with local industry partners The Art House supports the development of visual artists, writers, film, and digital media creators. Our facilities can be used for script readings, writing workshops and media presentations or use the studio as a black box for a photography/film space. We can offer technical support, space, and time.

The Art House exhibition space is a 500m2 area with a diverse range of opportunities to offer visual artists. Featuring a wall TV ideal for video and photography displays, it is flexible with access to a rear walled garden and is ideal for exhibitions, presentations and more.
