Empire Theatre Church Lawn Activation

Call for Proposals 

Help us to make the lawn come alive during Thrive on Arts – a creative celebration of children and families.

The Empire Theatres wants to engage a creative, vibrant and innovative artist/s to activate the outdoor Empire Church Lawn space for the period of the 2018 Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers.

We want the lawn to be not only visually striking and engaging but also a fun and creative place for children, families and the whole community to enjoy.

The Empire Theatres is calling for proposals to be made by suitably qualified artist/s to create and/or facilitate purpose built, site specific work/s to be displayed on the Empire Church Lawn from Friday 21 September to Sun 7 October 2018.

The work could be one large piece, or many smaller works created by an individual or a group. The scope is purposefully wide – we want to hear your ideas.  

Any questions or enquiries please call or email the Projects Manager on 4698 9925 or 

For more information, please download the information sheet here. 

Submissions must be received by COB Friday 9 March. 

Every year, the Empire Theatre has several opportunities for local singers, dancers, actors and instrumentalists of all ages and experience levels. In addition to the highly anticipated Empire Theatres musical and Empire Youth Arts IMPACT Ensemble production, the Empire Theatre has collaborated with Opera Queensland, Opera Australia, Expressions Dance Company and more to provide unique performance opportunities on the Empire stage and beyond.  Find out more about our major productions and projects.
