For people who don’t fit into boxes
Endangered Productions values individual diversity. In our Social Inclusion Program we provide creative opportunities for people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalised. Our live theatre productions provide a welcoming community for people with intellectual or physical disabilities, mental health problems or who are socially isolated.
For our forthcoming production of Peer Gynt, we aim to fund a dedicated social inclusion facilitator to develop creative pathways for each volunteer based on their specific skills, abilities and interests. Several of the Endangered Productions’ team, who have worked professionally with people who are socially marginalised, will also help these volunteers develop their capabilities.
There are a variety of ways people can contribute. For someone who wants to develop specific skills we link them with a mentor who supports and educates them. Others may enjoy supporting the cast and production team at rehearsals. Some ways people can be involved include:
- Computer, IT & social media
- Creating props or costumes to be used in productions or exhibits
- Set construction
- Photography – particularly rehearsal photos
- Supper preparation – food and drink are vital elements at all rehearsals
- Acting as audience – productions often involve audience engagement
- Observing and enjoying the rehearsal process
- Marking up sets, getting props organised
- Production assistance.
Want to be involved?
We welcome all kinds of volunteers. There are opportunities for volunteers to learn and share skills our upcoming production of Peer Gynt. We particularly welcome skilled creative, perhaps retired, Super Citizens who are willing to act as mentors.
Our productions will also provide work opportunities for professional musicians, singers, and actors.
We love sponsors. By becoming a private or corporate sponsor you will contribute to the creation of quality, accessible music theatre in Sydney. Contact us and we will get back to you directly about our upcoming production of Peer Gynt.
