Collaborative Ventures

Toronto Arts Foundation and Metcalf Foundation are supporting a two year research initiative to document and evaluate the process, progress and impact of two collaborative ventures in Toronto’s independent theatre sector.

Means of Production is investigating two questions. Why Not Theatre’s RISER Project is asking, “What can a community do (to leverage the community’s resources)?”, while STAF (the Small Theatre Administrative Facility) is asking, “What can the individual or collective do (to leverage one’s own resources)?”

Welcome to the Means of Production site: an ongoing documentation of the process of answering these questions, and an evaluation of the results.
