Adventurous theatre


creative development program

Now accepting applications


Announcing the launch of an annual creative development program for BIPOC artists in multi-disciplinary performance and creative development. 


The purpose of this program is to offer opportunities for Atlanta-area BIPOC artists to expand their artistic abilities through learning the unique techniques of film, puppetry, scriptwriting, directing, acting, sound design, and production which the creative team of The Object Group is experienced in. We are seeking applicants who are interested in expanding their abilities in these areas, and who have a creative project at any stage of development which this program would support through tailored creative workshops and a direct, no-strings-attached stipend of $1000. We will accept applications from writers, performers, producers, and directors of film, theatre, dance, music, and interdisciplinary experiences, and are especially interested to work with those artists who blend mediums and are committed to create new work. 


Workshop opportunities include: film production with Raymond Carr, directing with Marium Khalid, puppetry manipulation with Luis Hernandez, acting with Bryan Mercer, sound design with Kacie Willis, scriptwriting/fundraising with Michael Haverty, and more.


The program begins in March, 2021.  With health and safety our top priority, we will monitor COVID updates and provide utmost care in limiting live activities. Workshops and support meetings will be held online until further notice. 

Please complete the application below, using extra pages as necessary, and return to by February 2nd to be considered. 

from the novel by Albert Camus

An original, multimedia adaptation and critical investigation of Albert Camus’ classic novel ‘L’Etranger’, or ‘The Stranger’, told with a combination of Punch and Judy-style hand puppets and noir/new-wave inspired cinema animation. This brutally comedic tale set during the colonial occupation of Algeria by France creates a timeless conversation about cultural alienation, the brutal lack of empathy in white society, and the devastating effects of oppression on society and the soul.
