The Bridge Project
TheatreiNQ is justly proud of our Training Division, The Bridge Project, which aims to steer regional talent towards a career in the professional industry. Devised by Terri Brabon and Brendan O'Connor, The Bridge Project is a unique place-and-train model developed by theatre professionals for the development of young, emerging performing artists. The training package incorporates structured learning, immersion training, one-on-one mentoring and informal learning opportunities.
What makes The Bridge Project unique is the variety of opportunities TheatreiNQ offers and the personal attention every 'Bridgee' receives. Members of the program are set up to succeed and are supported every step of the way by industry professionals.
Former Bridge Project members are always considered part of the TheatreiNQ family and continue to be mentored through the next phases of their training and/or careers, whilst offering mentorship to the next generation of Bridge Project Actors. Many of our graduates have gone on to further study at NIDA, WAAPA, Griffith University, The Actors' Centre, 16th Street and are proudly carving themselves professional careers.Bridge Project Overview
