For Designers


STC employs creative teams that usually include Set, Costume, Video, Lighting, and Sound / Composition Designers. The creative team is assembled by the Director, who considers suggestions from STC’s Artistic Director and Artistic Team. If you are an established or emerging designer who wishes to be considered for opportunities at STC, please email your CV and / or portfolio to [email protected] with the words Designer Expression of Interest and your name in the subject line. You will receive an email acknowledgment and if there are any suitable opportunities available you may receive follow up correspondence from a member of the Artistic Team.

We encourage applications from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples or people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds. STC is committed to 20% of designers working at STC being Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and CALD from 2023, and 30% by 2025. You can read more about this in STC’s Cultural Representation Pledge.


STC’s Design Associate Program is an annual Resident Artists program for a group of designers from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and CALD backgrounds in the area of theatre design. Find out more
