Format: In Person

Participation Level: High - Participants are given an assignment to write an Organization Profile for review in Part Two.

This workshop is the first in a three-part series comprised of two group workshops and a one-on-one consulting session for each participant theatre. This workshop provides critical conceptual and practical building blocks for theatres developing organizational structures that fully reflect and support the work they are developing and producing. Topics examined include realities faced by small theatres today; key defining and guiding values and processes of each theatre's organization and culture based on its own unique qualities; and, insights into broad organizational application of these unique qualities. Participants are given an assignment to write an Organization Profile for review in Part Two.

Part Two of this series will be presented on November 6.
