Budgeting is an unavoidable part of making work, applying for grants, and sustaining a company. But the process doesn’t have to be daunting. Led by TEAM Producing Director Manda Martin and Associate Producer Lucy Jackson, with guest expert Nate Koch (Producer, upcoming Sweeney Todd at Barrow Street Theatre), in this workshop we’ll walk through the TEAM’s own operating and project budgets, discussing how to budget for project development and production, allocating resources effectively, and strategies for financial decision-making. We’ll solicit your questions in advance of the workshop to help guide our discussion.
Both Self-Producing workshops will take place at Der Stamm Kniepe – 710 Fulton Street, Fort Greene (map). Registration fee includes your first beer or beverage of choice (gluten-free and non-alcoholic options available).
Directing for Ensembles and Devised Work
Tuesday, December 6
South Oxford Space – 138 South Oxford Street, Fort Greene (map)
TEAM Artistic Director Rachel Chavkin will lead our Devising Within A Democracy workshop, focused specifically on the role of the director in a devised or ensemble-driven process. This intimate workshop will cover tools and strategies for group creation, delicate issues of collaboration and authorship, and the editing and synthesizing process.
For all devising workshops, we offer a 15% discount for up to 3 members of the same ensemble when you attend together. Requests for ensemble registration should be emailed to email@example.com, with “Ensemble Workshop Discount” in the subject heading, and information about your group. All discounts are subject to approval from the TEAM.
New this year, we’re holding one seat in each workshop for an equivalent number of volunteer hours instead of the full registration fee. Requests for barter should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Workshop Fee Barter” in the subject heading. Barter offers will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis, and participants must commit to an agreed schedule for volunteer hours prior to attending the class.
UPDATE: all barter spots for November and December have been filled.
