Connecting Communities & Culture

This fund commemorates playwright Erin Thomas’ optimism, her creative talent and further her generous contribution to the arts by helping emerging writers to pursue their dreams.

The Fund ordinarily supports travel for the career development of emerging regional playwrights. With the permission of the Thomas Family, The Erin Thomas Playwright Fund will be offered differently in 2020. 

In 2020, up to six emerging playwrights from regional or remote areas will be supported to work with a dramaturg or director on a new work via digital platforms, for a total period of eight hours. Both the playwright and the collaborating artist will be paid.

Submissions due 11:59PM Australian Eastern Standard Time, Sunday 31 May 2020
