We need to share our stories and pass them down to future generations. By bringing people together to celebrate our unique viewpoints, we can recognise collective narratives and grow understanding.
Legacy Project is a theatre development programme created to support and develop emerging theatre creators within our LGBTQI community by giving them the resources, network and space to share their short theatrical works on stage.
The project is a non-for-profit initiative focused on nurturing new queer creators for the New Zealand stage, to discover fresh theatrical voices and share their stories back to our community. Participation in the project is open to all. Anyone who wishes to write, direct or perform is encouraged to get involved.
We all have a role in passing along our legacy to the next generation so what story will you tell?
