The Playwright Partnership Grant Program assists Western Australian playwrights to partner with established producers in commissioning new theatre scripts that tell Western Australian stories.
The program offers grants for applications up to $30,000.
Playwrights are asked to submit proposals in partnership with a producing partner who will commission the work. The producing partner must demonstrate the commitment and capacity to develop the commissioned work into a fully professional production within a reasonable time frame. The producing partner is expected to match funding on a dollar for dollar basis. This may include in-kind support.
Applications for the next funding round open on 18 February 2020 and close on 4 May 2020.
