In 2019 Arena offered one round of work experience placement in a unique ensemble format. One student from each of Bendigo’s secondary schools (Years 10-12) was invited to take part in our one-week intensive work experience program. During this program students were able to work with professional theatre practitioners from Melbourne Theatre Company and the University of Melbourne on a Virtual Reality project. See the gallery of images below.

Very often, tertiary performing arts students are expected to gain hands on experience in a professional environment. Arena welcomes expressions of interest from tertiary students seeking internships during our rehearsal periods. We are open to proposals for unique projects that outline ways we can engage with tertiary students. Arena operates at a fast pace, so it is important that our interns are able to take initiative and think on their feet.
