Shared Office Space from A.R.T./New York

Another thing we've learned from the member report card: more of you want office space, and you don't want to wait till you've got a staff big enough to fill a large office.
A full-sized office year-round is great... for some companies. But project-based producers, small companies, and independent producers have different needs. In a step toward meeting those needs, later this summer we'll be offering shared office space at Spaces @ 520 so we can help more members take their work out of their apartments and into an office.
For $425 a month you can rent a dedicated desk in a new shared office at 520 8th Avenue, making working in midtown Manhattan more affordable.
For these renters A.R.T./New York will offer:
  • Furniture! The desk, chair, a (locking) filing cabinet, we've got them for you.
  • Mailing Address! Get your mail delivered here, it's your office after all.
  • Access to the shared Copier/Printer, just like our regular office renters.
  • Access to the shared Kitchen on our floor
  • Free Wi-Fi and Internet access
  • Keys! It sounds small, but it means access to your office whenever the building is open. You work when you want to work. We can even hook you up with a keycard to get into the building (no more waiting in line at security)
That's all in addition to a prime location. Not only will you have a work space in midtown Manhattan, you'll share the floor with 20+ other theatre companies, A.R.T/New York's own Main Office, and our rehearsal studios (not to mention all the other rehearsal spaces at 520and in the area!)  You can leave rehearsal and walk straight to work.

And we're adjusting the model to make office space feasible for more of you!

  • Flexible commitment: if you only need an office for a few months while your show is running, that's fine. you can let us know the length of your rental upfront, and if your needs change give us 30 days notice before ending your rental.
  • No deposit: the cost of your rental is the cost of your rental. No need to worry about huge costs upfront. All you need is your rent to start work in your new shared space.


Got questions?

This is new for us, and we're still figuring out all the details. Maybe you have a question about something that hasn't even occurred to us yet? If you've got questions email Roberto Cambeiro at



Spaces is limited, and like with our regular office space, we anticipate demand being much higher than supply. Please, fill out the interest form on our site to let us know you want a desk. Our facilities staff will follow up with you to confirm and contract your rental.





Psst! There's more!

Keep your eyes peeled. This is just the beginning. We've got big plans for more ways to access office space (drop-in office anyone?) that we'll be announcing in late 2017.

Protect Access To Wireless Microphone Technology in White Space

Share your support! Copy & Paste these sample tweets:
 We're joining @artny72 in support of an @FCC proceeding to ensure theatres can continue operating wireless mics.
  Theatres need access to White Space, and Microsoft filed a statement with the @FCC to block our access. Learn more:
Dear A.R.T./New York Members,

For the past few years, A.R.T./New York has been part of the Performing Arts Wireless Microphone Working Group in an effort to ensure that the FCC continue to allow nonprofit theatres free access to "white space" so that wireless microphones can be used without interference.

What is "white space"? Wireless microphones, backstage communication, and many sound systems for hearing impaired audiences rely on the "white space" frequencies between broadcast channels of the television band. 
On July 3rd, Microsoft filed a statement trying to block our access to "white space".
Here is a link to a statement and a history of our endeavors to protect your "white space", that is on TCG's website:

Please amplify our message by posting our statement below on your websites, and also posting on Twitter and other social media! If you have connections to influential figures who can help spread the word, so much the better!
Please let me know if you have any questions.


A.R.T./New York's Statement


new opportunity for interference protection for wireless microphones used in theatre is possible! To preserve and promote high standards of artistry onstage; safety for stagehands, actors, and audiences; and accessibility for hearing-impaired patrons in our audiences, A.R.T./New York​ supports an imminent FCC proceeding that has been opposed by Microsoft.

On Thursday, July 13, 2017, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will hold its July Open Meeting and has proposed to consider a new proceeding prompted by petitions filed by Shure and Sennheiser, two wireless microphone manufacturers. This new proceeding would propose permitting certain qualifying professional theatre, music, performing arts organizations, and similar organizations to obtain Part 74 licenses to operate wireless mics based on the applicant’s demonstrated need and requisite professional ability to operate in the bands, even if they routinely use fewer than 50 wireless microphones.

Welcome to Fiscal Year 2018! Like many of you, we began a new fiscal year on July 1 and it's a time for us to do some house cleaning, start new programs, and make some changes.

On August 7, member dues will change as follows:
As of 8/7
Tier 1A (Budget over $5 million)
$875.00 $900.00

Can't remember what Tier your company is? Simply Log in and look at your profile.

I just renewed my membership, what does this mean for me?
Not much! This will not effect you until the next time you renew, after August 7

My membership is about to expire! How much will my dues be?
If you renew before August 7, you pay the old rate, if you renew on or after August 7, you'll be charged the new rate. When the change happens it will be live, right there on the renewal form.

I have more questions!
Email Communications and Membership Manager Kati Frazier at if you have any questions about dues or problems renewing your membership.
