Milk Crate Theatre

About

Milk Crate Theatre effects social change through the power of performance. We provide opportunities for people whose voices are under-represented to engage in artistic practice to build confidence, skills and connections; and then share their bold and resonant stories to build empathy and break down barriers. Our community of Collaborative Artists are generally living with, have experienced or are at risk of homelessness; living with mental health or disability support needs; have experienced domestic violence or come from First Nations and/or culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

We utilise a strengths-based approach for positive impact on participant well-being and program design is underpinned by a Theory of Change which supports positive social impacts for both our program participants and broader societal change through the sharing of our works. Creative opportunities offered by Milk Crate Theatre include creative workshops delivered in partnership with Community Service providers, the development & presentation of original and new performance works with our Collaborative Artists and an Artist Development Program for people who have not had access to traditional education pathways.

Program donations fund:

Our Collaborative Artists with lived experience of homelessness have faced significant impacts on their physical and mental health with COVID-19 entering social housing sites and hostels across the City. With the support of this funding Milk Crate Theatre will deliver creative storytelling workshops run in partnership within Common Ground, Camperdown to help the community reconnect and build resilience following a period of hard lockdown through COVID. Common Ground provides housing for people experiencing long term homelessness. Professional artists and videographers will collaborate with the community to build skills and confidence to develop their stories to share with audiences.
