HEADWAY 2023

Headway 2023 is a refreshed and streamlined version of our 2017 Developing Artist Program, where Milk Crate Theatre Collaborative Artists gain next-level skills development in self-producing performance work.

The program focuses on devised theatre and performance making, within a Community Arts and Cultural Development framework - i.e. making work the way Milk Crate Theatre does! Participants in this program will learn about what it means to undertake the creation of a new work from various angles, including: considering yourself as an artist, planning, budgeting, engaging people to work with you, critical reflection, evaluation and receiving feedback. The course takes a first level view of these wide-ranging topics, with the view to develop deeper understanding through engagement on any one of Milk Crate Theatre's programming for the year, and potentially a Pathways Program in the future (mentorships to begin making new work)

PLEASE NOTE:

Participation in this program does not guarantee that your work will be made, or that Milk Crate Theatre can promise any future production of your ideas. Headway 2023 is an introductory course that is designed to support you in defining yourself as an artist, and refining the way you describe, consider and approach your work. Acceptance into the Headway program is at the discretion of Milk Crate Theatre.
