Studio Francis Ebejer 2023 is a new theatre work initiative that provides theatre-makers with the right tools to research and develop their scripts or theatre pieces through workshops and feedback sessions, resulting in stronger artistic quality. It is organized by Teatru Malta and Teatru Manoel who would like to cement it as the natural successor of the Atelier Francis Ebejer and Premju Francis Ebejer, launched in 2018 and 1995 respectively.

Successful applicants will be given access to the Studio Francis Ebejer’s resources, including rehearsal space, mentorship or advising, but also minor sets, props, costumes, actors and creative collaborators. The SFE can spend up to a maximum of €5000 to support the
development of one work.

To apply, please submit a proposal outlining your idea for the strand you are interested in, along with a CV and any relevant work samples. Applications should be sent to by 15 June 2023 at noon. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to a pitch with the selection panel.
