In Opportunities

The Theatre Section of the Australia Council for the Arts is calling for content to create a digital showcase of Australian women in theatre.

The exhibition will include stories, personal reflections and memorabilia celebrating the contribution of women theatre-makers to the Australian theatre scene. It will be installed in the Rover Thomas Auditorium and ground floor windows of the Australia Council offices in Sydney the week commencing 24 February 2014, and will be open to practitioners and the public for viewing until May 2014.

Women theatre-makers and producers from around Australia are invited to self-video a contribution and send it to the Australia Council for inclusion in the exhibition.
