The successful Producer in Residence will be chosen through an application process. This can be done through an online, written, video, or verbal process that addresses the Application Questions. The panel will consist of experienced producers who work independently or within an arts organisation in Darwin.


The applicant must be an ’emerging’ producer who has:

The residency is for a ‘producer’ of live events. Support will be provided to make the ‘idea’ a reality.

This includes the sourcing and management of resources:

The ‘project’ must have a live performance outcome and can be in one of the following genres:

• music
