Compass Professional Development Program

Knowing how to produce your own creative work is a vital skill for an independent artist. Compass is a new mentorship and artist development program which provides business skills and industry knowledge to help you with your career in the arts.

Participants will be paired with an industry mentor, gain access to professional networks, learn about producing, project management and marketing skills and receive one-on-one producing support if they are producing a Festival event.

Compass is an inclusive program for people with and without disability.

Applications for Compass have now closed, but check in with us in 2017 for new dates and info. 

Artists who are Deaf or with disability, artists who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, artists from diverse backgrounds and artists who identify as LGBTIQ are strongly encouraged to apply.
