As an A.R.T./New York member, you will become part of a vibrant, collaborative, theatre community that includes individual practitioners, artist collectives, Off-Broadway theaters, and everything in between! You’ll also gain access to exclusive educational resources, networking events, subsidized space, and professional development opportunities for you and/or your staff. 

Being a member also gives you a more direct line to A.R.T./New York staff for those moments when you need some advice or help connecting with other resources. And, very importantly, it enables us to count and include you when we share out about trends, issues, and needs within our field and to advocate on your behalf.
