Little Black Afro Theatre is seeking emerging artists under 30 with a performance-based project in its early stages to participate in the Emerging Artists Project (EAP), a youth-led process-driven new work development program.

EAP aims to give you space to develop as an artist; to provide a safe place where you can take creative risks. EAP is a process focused program with a collaborative philosophy and a transparent operating system. This means that you will have a dedicated administrative and artistic support team available to you throughout the program.

We respond to the needs of the artists. What do you need?
