DEVELOPING ARTIST PROGRAM
Milk Crate Theatre's Developing Artist Program is for participants that have been in our
programs for some time and are seeking a new level of challenge.
Beginning with Headway in 2017, Milk Crate Theatre's Artistic Director Margot Politis took 9 Milk Crate Theatre participants through a 14-week artistic development course around artistic practice, community arts and cultural development and producing their own work. Headway was run in partnership with TAFE NSW; the participants received certificates of attainment for their work.
Pathways offered participants who completed the Headway Program the opportunity to work one-on-one with a practising professional artist in a structured, supported and tailored mentorship. These participants created their own pieces of performance work, carving stronger pathways to autonomy, empowerment and self-efficacy.
In 2018, Margaret Baldwin, Owen Gill, John McDonnell and Pauline Trenerry worked with professional artist mentors to create their own new work; ranging from comedy theatre to drama for the screen. Read more about our most recent mentors and mentees below:
