Running successfully since 2004, Griffin Ambassadors is an annual access-all-areas program for year 10 to 12 students. The year-long program is stocked with a hearty menu of workshops, performances and access to industry professionals, all geared to support the next generation of theatre-goers and theatre-makers.
Ambassadors are united by a common curiosity about contemporary Australian stories, a love of theatre and the motivation to know more!
“For me Griffin’s Ambassadors program is an opportunity unmatched by any other company in Sydney, that not only allows me to expose myself to a diverse range of theatrical work without the burden of cost, but has also connected me with artists who inspire me as well as people my age with similar interests and aspirations. What it does better than any other youth-based program, is cultivate discussions and dialogues between talented theatre artists who are successfully working in the industry, and the young people who will one day be contributing to the industry themselves.” Laura Hopkinson, Griffin Ambassador
Ambassadors might be curious techies, budding playwrights, outgoing performers, or maybe just love going to see theatre! Ambassadors get to:
Attend an induction day at the start of the year to learn about Griffin’s season, the workings of the company and its artistic direction.
Participate in exclusive Ambassador workshops (in directing, acting, or writing) taught by leading theatre practitioners.
Attend a Saturday matinee performance of each Griffin Main Season production and participate in post-show forums with casts and creatives.
Be able to share their experience of Griffin’s work with a special $20 ticket price available to Ambassador’s family and friends.
Applications for the 2017 program have closed. The 2018 program will be open for applications later this year.
The Griffin Ambassadors program is supported by the Robertson Foundation.
