Event Details

Writing Place is a one-week residency for regional writers and performance makers aged between 18 and 26 living outside Australia’s largest cities (Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra). Writing Place has been established in response to consultation with young people and teachers from regional South Australia who expressed concern over the lack of scripts for teenagers that reflect the lives and circumstances of regional young people here and now. The little new work that does exist for teenagers in Australia tends to by written by or focussed on metropolitan and East Coast experiences. There is a need for performance work that reflects the landscape, attitudes and experiences of regional Australia.
