Urban Theatre Projects

Producers Circle


$3000 + annual donation

'Committed to diversity, equity and allyship, Utp is one of the most innovative and diverse commissioning organisations in the country. Utp uses the arts in vital and compelling ways to forge connections and start new conversations, often in the spaces where people don't know where to start' - Rachel Morley, Associate Dean, School of Humanities and Communication Arts, Western Sydney University

Join a passionate group of donors to seed contemporary Australian work.

Utp Producers Circle offers supporters an opportunity to engage with us in the creation of new work. You'll stay closely connected throughout the creative process - to the work, to the artists, and to our company.

That old adage, 'you need money to make money', rings very true in the creative industries. Your donation emboldens us to secure additional support from Government, foundations, and sponsors, which in turn increases our ability to provide direct and sustained support to artists.

Utp Producers Circle members donate $3000+ per annum. By joining, you're not only providing vital support for artists to explore fresh ideas and develop new contemporary work, you're also actively shaping an arts landscape that is socially responsive, locally engaged and urgently relevant.

Your donation funds:

$3000 provides 1 artist a wage for a two- week residency

Utp adds in value:

  • 3000 in wages for an artistic collaborator
  • $660 in artist on-costs
  • $500 in technical and equipment hire costs
  • $2500 in producing and production support
  • $1000 in venue costs

$7600 total investment from Utp for a two-week residency

What you get in return
