Showcase Victoria Circus and Physical Theatre Initiative – Launch

Showcase Victoria Circus and Physical Theatre Initiative

We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Showcase Victoria Circus and Physical Theatre (CaPT) Initiative, a capacity-building project supported by Creative Australia.
 
Our mission with this initiative is clear: to grow capacity, skills, and experience in touring and presenting CaPT works across Victoria. Through directly subsidising venues to present Victorian CaPT works from Showcase Victoria across 2024 and 2025, this project will result in a substantially increased number of performances in venues across the state, growing new audiences and building confidence amongst producers and presenters.
 
Programming outcomes from Showcase Victoria will be supported by a series of professional development opportunities for the sector, focussed on strengthening CaPT-specific practices to support the successful touring and presentation of these projects. This upskilling will have a lasting impact beyond the two years of this initiative, enabling the industry to build stronger and lasting collaborative relationships.
 
Applications for presenter venues to access funding under this initiative will open in June.
 
  • Applications open: Monday, June 17th.
  • Applications close: Friday, June 28th, 3:00pm.
 
Join us for a webinar on Tuesday, May 7th, at 12:30 pm, where we will guide presenter venues in preparing for Showcase and offer insights into the CaPT Initiative’s objectives and requirements.
Follow the link below for more information about the CaPT projects eligible for subsidised programming and how to register for the webinar.
 
Showcase Victoria is proudly presented by the Victorian Association of Performing Arts Centres (VAPAC) with support from Creative Victoria and Regional Arts Victoria. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through Creative Australia, its arts funding and advisory body.
