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.

This year the Ensemble’s Program Director, Nazaree Dickerson, has trained the team to lead workshops, collaborate with emerging and established First Peoples theatre artists, and build industry networks and career pathways. 

Running since 2018, ILBIJERRI’s Ensemble program has been shaped by its participants. The current aim of the program is to empower Ensemble members to further empower a whole new generation of little theatre-makers!
