More than $18,000 in bursaries were awarded to 25 talented young individuals thanks to the Empire Theatre’s donors and sponsors on Thursday 1 November. The aim of the bursaries is to develop skills and give new experiences to young artists who demonstrate talent, involvement and achievement in a performing arts discipline. This year’s recipients will attend short courses at Queensland Theatre, Jazz Music Institute, Expressions Dance Company, Sydney Dance Company, Brent Street Performing Arts, Victorian College of the Arts, Empire Theatre Youth Arts, Sound Thinking and ED5.
