A Note on Eligibility & Project Selection

No previous theatre experience is required. We are interested in original, compelling, human stories that reflect the independent vision of the writer. We want to support a diverse and daring group of theatre artists who tell unique stories, present material in a new form, or conceptualize existing material with an innovative vision. We look for writers and collaborators who are interested in genuinely exploring their material. This is an environment that encourages and supports risk-taking, experimentation and rigorous re-writing and re-imagining. If you are not comfortable with this, the course might not be for you.

Apply here

Art classes for children and adults organised by Foundation for Contemporary Art, Mmofra Foundation and the Nubuke Foundation will be available soon. Acting classes available by appointment.
