The two 2012 bursaries will run from 11 April to 19 May, and from 20 June to 27 July. The bursaries are specifically designed for emerging theatre directors who have had some experience in directing and whose passion is to have a career as a theatre director. The Emerging Theatre Director’s Bursary is part of the GIPCA Directors and Directing programme and requires both awardees to participate in the three-day colloquium that takes place towards the end of July.

GIPCA is running a host of colloquiums throughout 2012 that cover a range of themes such as race, identity, representation, culture, dance and climate-change. Emerging directors who are interested must submit a one-page creative proposal, a CV with two references, contact details and preferred date to [email protected] by Friday, 17 February 2012.
