The Emerging Theatre Director’s Bursaries are made possible by GIPCA, the Theatre Arts Admin Collective, the Baxter Theatre Centre and the Distell Foundation. The Bursary serves as an opportunity for young directors to continue to develop their skills, be mentored in the creation of a new piece of work, have their work seen by a wider audience (particularly theatre producers) and help establish them in the profession of directing. One of the Bursary’s aims is to affirm directing as a prospective career choice, creating a space for emerging directors to keep developing their craft through working with a mentor. The mentorship programme not only ensures that skills are continuously developed but connects emergent and established directors to each other ensuring a transfer and exchange of knowledge and skills.
