First Nations Writing Program
September 6th – 10th 2021
What is the program?
This week-long program is for up to 6 First Nation writers from the NT to work on the development of their ideas. It will be held in the Brown’s Mart precinct and will be led by Bunuba man and theatre maker Fred Copperwaite.
What are we looking for?
New ideas for scripts from First Nations artists. Scripts may be at any stage of development from an initial idea, a handful of pages of dialogue, one or two scenes, a treatment or a rough draft, poems, songs or other forms.
How will it work?
Writers will work alongside Frederick to develop their ideas. Discussion, exercises and the reading of the scripts will assist artists to advance their ideas to the next stage of development. Writers will be paid a wage for the week and will be given access to computers, the internet and printing facilities.
How do I apply and when is it due?
Application is via an Expression of Interest form. The deadline is close of business August 23rd 2021
