1. The Next Step Program. This program aims to offer a range of pathways and opportunities to Aboriginal creative artists and art workers to enter the performing arts industry and to succeed in achieving their professional goals in the professional theatre sector.The existing program supports approximately 12 artists each year.
2. The Yirra Yaakin Writers Group. This is an annual 3-month training program culminating in an invitation to present their work for 6-10 writers at our annual Yirra Yarnz event during NAIDOC Week.In 2017 6 writers were developed through this program. In 2018 we have successfully raised enough funds for 10 writers to be developed through this 3 month program.
