Applications for the Next Wave’s 2007 Kickstart program are coming to a close on Friday December 15th so if you’ve been harbouring an idea, now’s the time to bring it to life by getting your application in.

The Kickstart program gives young emerging artists the opportunity to develop innovative new projects, with Next Wave providing funding, mentorship and regular workshops to assist the development of their work.

State and Territory Finalists were recently announced for the National Australia Day Council's Australian of the Year Award 2007. Alongside three other nominees, Bangarra's Artistic Director Stephen Page has been short listed for the New South Wales category of the award.

Stephen Page is the first Indigenous dancer/choreographer to have achieved international recognition. He studied dance at the National Aboriginal and Islander Skills Development Association and after graduating in 1983 began a professional career as a dancer with the Sydney Dance Company.

2008 sees Griffin take new Australian writing nationwide. In addition to five full productions presented at the company’s resident venue, the SBW Stables Theatre in Kings Cross, next year Griffin will tour or transfer a record-breaking four productions.
