Tastings 2020

Tastings is an opportunity to develop new ORIGINAL SHORT WORKS and works in development run by the UMSU Creative Arts Department. With over a decade’s worth of history, Tastings will take place over the course of Semester 2 and provides emerging writers, performance makers, choreographers, directors, filmmakers and other student artists who can’t be categorised a mentorship with an industry professional, resources and support in developing new work, along with the option to show your original short work in a facilitated online setting.

Making art in our current climate can be challenging, and Tastings 2020 will be responding to public health and safety advice along the way. However, the focus of Tastings is to develop new work, create your own lil gem that is not a fully fledged show yet, and we are committed to making that happen.
