Digital Mentorship

The Digital Mentoring Program is an opportunity for artists to extend their practice and audience into the digital space by producing a piece of video content that is an accompaniment to their existing performance work or practice. 

Two artists/companies will receive mentoring on the creation and production of original digital video content at the state-of-the-art Opera House Broadcast Studio (OHBS). The artists will be supported by expert technicians including a video director, editor and sound engineer and will participate in a series of masterclasses and consultation sessions to assist them in making their work.

Once the video pieces have been produced, the Sydney Opera House marketing team will provide specialist advice in digital marketing and support the distribution of the works.
