The Digital Mentorship 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 mentorships are underway with artists Roslyn Helper and Dirty Feet Collective currently receiving mentoring on the creation and production of original digital video content at the Opera House Broadcast Studio (OHBS). The artists are supported by an industry mentor and OHBS technicians, and will participate in a series of masterclasses and consultation sessions to assist them in making their work.
Under the guidance of their mentor, the artist and their team will conceive, develop and deliver an artistic programming content piece.
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.
The outcome will be a short video piece co-produced between the artist and Sydney Opera House. The artists will retain copyright in the work and will grant Sydney Opera House a non-exclusive licence to communicate the digital work on our online channels. The Sydney Opera House will also have the exclusive right to premiere the work on our online channels for a period of 6 months.
All participants in the program will be required to sign a short independent contractor agreement with the Sydney Opera House Trust.
