Urban Theatre Projects | About

by Emily McTaggart

Urban Theatre Projects (UTP) makes work that has social impact. As one of Western Sydney’s premier independent arts organisations, UTP has created over 115 new Australian works that have received awards and recognition internationally and nationally. They tell personal, real-life stories that present a complex portrait of contemporary Australia and bring these stories into the everyday by creating site-specific, distinctive, cultural experiences for audiences. They’re driven to make work that has the power to shift perceptions and break down stereotypes – work that inspires us to create a fairer and more compassionate society. They do that by connecting people through great storytelling and rich, shared experiences.

In 2017 UTP set up a new Satellite Hub in Blacktown to support artists-in-residence in bringing RIGHT HERE. RIGHT NOW. to life. This upcoming program is the 6th partnership between UTP and Blacktown Arts and reflects our shared commitment to re-setting the cultural conversation about contemporary multicultural Australia.
