Teaching Artist Training Program

Professional Development for theatre artists who are interested in developing or building on their teaching skills.

Teaching Artist Steve in Rockhampton

Teaching artists are a vital part of the performing arts landscape, sharing their skills, passion and knowledge with the community, young people and emerging performers. Queensland Theatre is committed to ensuring that there are skilled teaching artists in our schools and the wider community, not just for our own programs but for the sector as a whole.

In 2024, Queensland Theatre’s Teaching Artist Program will take on a new cohort of emerging teaching artists. This is a professional development program for eight Queensland-based artists who are interested in developing or building on teaching skills enhanced with their artistry.

This program includes a payment subsidised week-long intensive teaching artistry training and development program and individualised mentorship for the remainder of the year which honours the artist’s existing skills and responds to their specific goals.

Additionally, throughout the week, keynote speeches by leading industry creatives will be open to teachers and established teaching artists currently working throughout Queensland.
