Australia’s vibrant performing arts industry spans drama, music and dance and their respective production environments.
Touring and exchanging artists is an important part of advancing theatre, orchestras and ballet in Australia and abroad, as artists experience different audiences, approaches and how other companies and ensembles work.
In Australia with its vast distances, this cultural exchange is of even greater significance.
BBM global industry scholarships support individual young artists and their companies by supporting the creative, cultural exchange on the global stage. We enable musicians, actors and dancers to compete internationally or audition at some of the finest academies in the world. Many return with renewed passion and a new approach to their craft, while others spend years performing abroad before returning to become industry leaders in Australia’s performing arts.
A BBM global industry scholarship is an opportunity for those who want to boost their craft and become the best performer they can be, as well as for those who want to experience the breadth of career options in their field.
