We welcome applications from artists who are looking to challenge themselves and their form, explore new territory, grow their skills, diversify participation in the arts, comment on contemporary life, push boundaries and offer new experiences. Artists and companies whose work is selected to be produced during the Season are offered unparalleled support across all aspects of their production.
The Annual Season is programmed through a rotating independent panel of peer assessors chosen by The Blue Room Theatre. Peers change from season to season, and the assessors aim to curate a program of works in a way that fulfils our purpose of championing independent artists, new work, and new ways of making work in consideration of the selection criteria
For more information on how we approach the programming process at the venue, please read our Programming Policy linked here
