Fall Roundtables
Tuesday, September 02, 2014 12:00 AM

Fall is coming and that means the return of A.R.T./New York's Core Roundtable Series!

These one and a half hour meetings are opportunities for our members to speak with their peers about relevant issues and experiences, broken down by topic and budget size (for example, marketing for companies with budgets over $1 million). We encourage our members to come together at our Core Roundtable Series to share and learn from each other over coffee and donuts. 

While each Roundtable is set-up by topic and tier, all members are able to attend any Roundtable they wish. Is your company is about to jump up in budget size? Send your General Manager to the Roundtable one tier up! The Core Roundtable Series is the membership's breeding ground for new ideas and new connections. Ariana Schrier, Artistic Director for Pipeline Theatre agrees, "these roundtables are helping us to build a sustainable business model based on the wisdom of those who came before us, and to sojourn ahead with a new confidence in our business practices."

The first Roundtable of the season is coming up on Tuesday, September 9 for Tier 4 Executive/Managing Directors. The second roundtable this month will be on Thursday, September 18 for Tier 2 & 3 Executive/Managing Directors and will be followed up on Tuesday, September 23 by the Roundtable for Tier 1 Executive/Managing Directors.

Also, if you have a topic that you've been dying to talk about, you could reach out the Director of Programs, Ann Marie Lonsdale and together you can set up a Topical Roundtable. Topical Roundtables are initiated by our members are not specific to any one Tier. Past topics have been Green and Sustainable Theatre Practices and Producing Site-Specific Theatre.

If you are an A.R.T./New York member and would like to register to attend a roundtable, just log in to our website with your individual username, navigate to the Event Calendar, and click on the registration link for the event you would like to attend.

2014 Edith Lutyens and Norman Bel Geddes Design Enhancement Fund Recipient

We are delighted to announce the 2015 Edith Lutyens and Norman Bel Geddes Design Enhancement Fund grant application calendar. Since 2004, this fund has augmented A.R.T./New York member theatres' design budgets, providing designers with increased resources by which they can further their experiences and their artistic growth.

Companies with budgets under $5 million that have their own 501(c)(3) status, and that have not received Bel Geddes grants the past two consecutive years, are eligible to apply to increase the costume, set, lighting, sound, and/or media elements of one production in the upcoming calendar year. This is an enhancement grant only; all eligible productions are expected to occur as initially conceived by the design team sans Bel Geddes funding.

All members will receive an email with a direct link to the online application form once it goes live.

Introduction from the New Director of Programs
Wednesday, August 20, 2014 03:33 PM
Dear Members,


I am thrilled to join the team at A.R.T./New York as Director of Programs, starting August 11. In so many ways, this is a dream job for me. I began my career in theater as a stage manager in Chicago's storefront theater scene, and during the last seven years that I have been in New York City, I have been fortunate enough to run a small presenting space in Brooklyn, to develop and manage professional development programs for individual artists at Creative Capital, and to produce live performance. I will bring every one of these experiences to bear in executing the amazing suite of programs at A.R.T./New York. 


New York's theater scene is so diverse, curious, engaged, and exciting. It will be a privilege to bring all the resources that are available through A.R.T./New York - space, grants, loans, professional development - to serve you, the membership. I hope we will find many ways to address all the challenges in the field together, to develop new resources, and to support the innovative and exciting theater that you are creating every day. This community of members and colleagues is in and of itself a wonderful resource. I am excited to meet you all, learn more about you, and see the theater you make. 


I am honored to be of service to this community, and I look forward to our work together. 


Excited to get started! 

Ann Marie Lonsdale
