Submissions are open for the following programmes:

NEW MAKERS’ PROGRAM- (For newcomer theatre makers: writers, directors, performers)
OUTREACH PROGRAM- (Community & Applied Theatre)
CO-PRODUCTION PROGRAM- (For emerging and established theatre makers & artists. Funded in cooperation with an external producer)
MAIN PROGRAM- (For experienced and professional theatre-makers and artists)
LIVE ART PROGRAM- (For experimental and performative/ digital works by newcomer, emerging and professional artists).

All approved works will be produced by the NTN and feature as part of the season that will run from August 2021 – July 2022.
