We support the creative energy, initiatives and voices of the URBAN THEATRE PROJECT.
Utp has been at the forefront of art and social change since 1979. Recognised internationally, the Company has a 43-year history of creating artistically distinctive work and being at the forefront of contemporary arts practice. Utp is leading a “not so quiet revolution” of art that is socially responsive, inclusive and that reflects the diverse* nation we live in. They lead from the lands of the Darug people ( Western Sydney) and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded. Utp is a unique commissioning and producing organisation who make long-term investments in collaborations with artists and/or communities from outside the dominant culture to give form to extraordinary ideas. They never do this alone, working with an exceptional set of partners to co-produce a year-round program of performance, dance, visual art, learning and community-led projects, unlike anything you have seen before. Their curatorial model ensures projects are self-determined by artists and/or communities, challenging the dominant methodology of the lead Artistic Director to give rise to truly artist/community led projects. They are committed to offering access-for-all to brilliant ideas, unusual experiences and critical thinking.
