SGCNZ UOSWSF Regional & National Festivals 2014
Here are the dates for next year. These are current as of early December 2013, but some details are yet to be confirmed, so please check for updates.
SGCNZ Emerging Theatre Practitioners Programme 2014
This programme is designed to provide professional development for post-tertiary young theatre practitioners, those who are beyond SGCNZ Festivals, NSSP and YSC, but not yet ‘mid-career’. It will run for about 5 months from January – May 2014 and comprises:
- Jan – Feb: 2 month internship at Shakespeare’s Globe
- Early March – early April: internship at Folger (Washington DC) with a visit to Blackfriars
- Mid-April – mid-May: internship with An Eagle’s Nest Theatre, Australia
We realise that this is very last minute for 2014, especially to raise the required funds which will be approximately $20,000. This figure does include an around-the-globe air fare, local travel, food, accommodation, course fees, theatre tickets and incidentals.
Applications and expressions of interest are sought immediately. Contact Dawn Sanders (04) 384 1300 or 027 283 6016 or Action-Sanders@xtra.co.nz with ETPP in the subject line.
After years of expressions of interest, homeschool groups are invited to join SGCNZ’s Regional and National University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festivals and the allied arts competitions.
You are invited to appoint a contact person for your homeschool region to liaise with SGCNZ and to assist groups in your region to participate. Should you need more support or information you are also welcome to contact the Wellington Home Education Network (WHEN)’s new Shakespeare contacts:
- Sarah Brooks: firstname.lastname@example.org (primary age groups)
- Sharon Callaghan: email@example.com (secondary age groups)
