Theatre Network ACT supports the independent and professional non-profit live performance sector to build capacity through advocacy, development and exchange. Canberra is a unique city of ideas, combining a regional character within a burgeoning city state.  It functions as both an artistic regional hub and the centre of federal politics contributing to national policy and action within a global context. It is an outward looking city with an international flavour, shaped by a transient population and has an ever growing diaspora of artists.

Currently, the challenges facing the ACT Live Performance sector are sustainability based, including a lack of critical mass of skilled professionals, limited ongoing professional opportunities, national recognition of ACT artists and creative work and national representation.

Theatre Network ACT exists to address these challenges and is comprised of people who make, produce and present live performance as individuals and/or organisations.

Theatre Network ACT meets quarterly and aims to achieve its objectives through the following:

BUILDING CAPACITY

  • Creative Capacity
  • Community Capacity
  • Economic Capacity

ADVOCACY
