Champion regional emerging talent

Open Pitch Appeal

We invite you to play your part in supporting an early career theatre maker to create and tour their first major professional production to rural and community venues across the region.

Open Pitch is a new competition that encourages regional artists to present original project ideas suitable for rural touring to a New Perspectives panel of creative practitioners. Three artists are offered targeted support over a short development phase to progress their piece, before a winner is awarded a full production. New Perspectives will tour the winning Open Pitch production for six weeks between summer 2019 and spring 2020.

As an Open Pitch Champion you will make difference by:
- supporting a new ideas to flourish into a professional touring production
- investing in the career development of an emerging artist
- helping adventurous home-grown performances for regional rural and community audiences thrive
