Propel Projects Emerging Performers Residency

Propel Projects Emerging Performers Residency (PROPEL) is a unique opportunity for emerging local performing artists to access space to create, rehearse and perform as well as connect with mentors and additional support to help them hone their craft and propel their art practice to the next level. 

In our inaugural year, we are offering time and space within Blue Mountains City Council (BMCC) facilities for emerging practitioners to develop new work or rehearse existing works. Residents will also have access to a suite of additional support, networking and performance opportunities including an artist stipend, industry mentorships, technical and production support, and most excitingly, the opportunity to perform within the region’s premier performing arts facility, The Blue Mountains Theatre and Community Hub.

Coordinated by the BMCC’s Cultural Development department in partnership with the Blue Mountains Theatre and Community Hub, and with generous support from the City of the Arts Trust and MTNS Made, there will be four residencies across the next 12 months with two between August 2022 to January 2023 and two between January and June 2023.
