Welcome to Wollongong’s Home of the Performing Arts

Grant recipients announced

Wollongong’s home of performing arts, Merrigong Theatre Company, has announced the 12 independent artists who will receive a share of $24,000 in funding towards the development of new performance projects.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, and its effect on employment opportunities for performing artists, Merrigong Theatre Company ‘Rebooted’ its MERRIGONGX Artists’ Program for 2020, with an injection of repurposed funds for new projects from independent artists. Artists who reside in, or have strong links to, the Illawarra region were invited to apply for small grants of $2,000 – $4,000 to contribute to the creation of new work.

The successful projects span a breadth of performance types and genres, including dance, theatre, circus, livestreamed gigs, puppetry, orchestral experiences and more.
