Emerging Artists

Trajectory Residency 2023

In 2023, Trajectory Residency supported three emerging artists to create a new work and build on their arts practice towards a sustainable career in the arts. 

 From January to June, Tantrum provided these selected artists with studio space and infrastructure to work on their idea and see it through its development. We matched these selected artists with an industry mentor, providing invaluable feedback and guidance through this development period. 

 In partnership with Shopfront Arts, the residents attended ArtsLab in Sydney and made valuable connections with other emerging artists and heard from industry professionals.  

Residents attended free masterclasses by Critical Stages Touring and Tantrum to better their understand the industry and how to move forward as an emerging artist.

The residency culminated in SHOWROOM, an industry event where the artists-in-residence presented their works as works-in-progress, at the end of July.

September Jones
September Jones

September Jones (she/her) is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice spans visual art, poetry, performance and movement. For the Trajectory Residency, September is exploring the themes of a lighthouse and its symbology in the disclosure of abuse – the safety of one light which invites boats lost at sea to safely navigate the same murky terrain.

September will be bridging together these themes with a physical devising process, creating a performance piece that is both entertaining, engaging and thought provoking.

September’s industry mentor is Lucy Shepherd, a theatre maker, performer and director with expertise in devised work and physical theatre. Lucy is currently based on the Central Coast, NSW.
