The ILBIJERRI Ensemble is an artist development program open to Australian First Nations emerging theatre practitioners, young people and community members aged 15+.
Participants have the opportunity to learn new skills; collaborate with emerging and established First Nations theatre artists and build industry networks and career pathways.
Running since 2018, ILBIJERRI’s Ensemble program has been shaped by its participants – and in 2022 the aim of the program is to empower Ensemble members to further empower a whole new generation of little theatre-makers!
