Talent Camp

Screen Queensland has partnered with AFTRS to deliver Talent Camp, a diversity and inclusion project designed to provide skills development opportunities to emerging storytellers and screen content creatives from diverse backgrounds.

Talent Camp workshops will run for five consecutive days in each capital city, with 12-15 participants, and will focus on story development, producing considerations and career pathways. Queensland’s workshops run from 30 October to 3 November 2017.

We want to hear from you if you have produced creative works, are passionate about storytelling and are interested in exploring a career in screen media.

Applicants from under-represented communities in the screen industry are encouraged to apply with specific reference to cultural background, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, geographic disadvantage and socio-economic status. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander creatives are strongly encouraged to apply.

There is no workshop fee for participants. Funds will be made available to contribute to flight and accommodation costs for participants from rural or regional locations. Other access costs will be met.

Applications for Queensland applicants close 9am, 28 August 2017. Check out http://www.aftrs.edu.au/short-courses/talent-camp for details and to apply.
