Digital Mentorship Program 2019

Call out: Expressions of Interest

The Sydney Opera House is welcoming Expressions of Interest from independent artists and groups working in the performing arts to participate in our annual Digital Mentorship Program.

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 artists will receive mentoring on the creation and production of original digital video content at the Opera House Broadcast Studio (OHBS). The artists will be supported by an industry project mentor and OHBS technicians, and will participate in a series of masterclasses and consultation sessions to assist them in making their work.

We are seeking Expressions of Interest from artists outlining an idea for video content that is developed for a digital platform and related to a live performance or body of work. Under the guidance of their mentor, the artist and their team will conceive, develop and deliver on the production of their piece. We are not seeking to support digital marketing videos, only artistic programming content.

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.
