If you’ve ever dreamt of putting a show on stage but didn’t have the know-how or resources, here’s your chance to realise that dream!
Kakiseni is pleased to announce the Mentor-mentee Programme that comes with generous funding for successful applicants to realise their vision as a performing arts production as well as a monthly allowance for the duration of the programme.
This programme pairs aspiring Malaysian performing artists with a local industry veteran who will guide them on their journey to successfully stage a full production. The aim is to help talented individuals develop their creative potential with the guidance of knowledgeable, experienced mentors in the fields of theatre, dance and music.
‘Mentees’ will receive a RM100,000 staging grant in order to realise their idea/concept as an actual staged production.
They also receive an allowance of RM1,800 per month to compensate their living expenses for the duration of the programme.
