30 semi-finalists announced for Artists of Colour Initiative

A crowd-sourced prize pool will be distributed among six finalists, who will also be in the running for a Diploma in Musical Theatre scholarship.

Thirty semi-finalists have been selected for the 2020 Artists of Colour Initiative, a competition designed to provide financial assistance and industry training for Australian-based theatre performers identifying as Blak/Black, Indigenous or as People of Colour.
