Homegrown is the Empire Theatre Projects Company’s Independents program encouraging the development and production of new and exciting works and allowing them space to be seen and presented. Independent producers are afforded expert advice and assistance to produce their event and the program is flexible and responsive to the individual needs of the producer.
Past Independent producers have gone on to show their work elsewhere and have their work be published. The program has allowed for experimentation, collaboration and creative freedom and has produced high quality results. This program is designed to provide access, develop community capacity, support local emerging artists and develop theatre audiences by introducing them to new and local adventurous work.
The program encourages applications from all disciplines including cross discipline work. We want to hear your idea and help you share it with the wider community. We are open to flexible presentation models but offer a standard structure as a starting point.
Applications are to be submitted to the Box Office before Sunday 15th January 2017.
