National Theater Project Regional Convenings
NTP regional convenings expand knowledge and experience of ensemble and devised theater in regions of the U.S. that are less well known and resourced. NTP seeks to bridge this knowledge gap through co-hosting regional convenings where regional artists, presenters, funders, and service organizations share experiences and learning about distinct local contexts and discuss geographically specific challenges to creating and presenting work. Participants engage in discussion with NTP advisors and staff about issues of equity around access to production and touring resources. Convenings also include performances by local artists to raise familiarity with the aesthetics of the region and to help inform future NTP project selection.
National Theater Project Artist Development Grant
Artist Development Grants are small grants that offer development support between $5,000 and $10,000 to as many as five NTP Creation & Touring projects reviewed in the final application round. Advisors select projects and recommend specific developmental work that would advance the project, regardless of whether it ultimately receives an NTP Creation & Touring award. Grantees have used the support for the creation of better work samples, construction of crucial set elements, dramaturgical assistance, and the creation of workshop opportunities to generate interest in the project.
