High/Way 234 is a residency designed to strengthen creative communities across Greater Western Sydney as well as build capacity for next generation artists.

Residents will work out of The Joan, Penrith for their first week, Powerhouse Youth Theatre, Fairfield for their second and third weeks and PACT, Erskineville for their final week.
Each stage of the residency will be supported by mentorship from the company Artistic Directors Katrina Douglas, Karen Therese and Nick Atkins and each project will be given $3000 cash for the purpose of artist fees and project costs.
