Support workers in the performing arts

A place for Melbourne’s independent arts community to explore, hone and develop professional practice.

Following the successful launch of Art Centre Melbourne’s dedicated sector development program in 2017, The Kiln is set to return this June taking over foyer spaces in Hamer Hall, the Playhouse and the State Theatre.

The Kiln program aims to prioritise and engage the independent and small-to-medium performing arts sector through professional development workshops, talks and events from leading Australian artists and companies. Access, inclusion and representation are key focuses for The Kiln in 2019. Join us for a ‘Safe Theatres for Independents’ workshop as well as workshops from Transgender Victoria and the Arts Wellbeing Collective.

Partner organisations include: Arts Access Victoria, Melbourne Fringe, Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Theatre Network Australia, Casa Cultura, Chunky Move and Theatre Heritage Australia. The Kiln will also feature a number of regular Arts Centre Melbourne-initiated development opportunities and events at The Channel.
