- Sector Improvement
WHO IS STAGESOURCE?
Founded in 1985, StageSource was created as an actors’ alliance, focused on creating employment opportunities and a network of resources for theater artists in the Greater Boston Area. Over time, StageSource expanded its programming focus—first to included theater artists of all disciplines, then to support theatrical organizations and finally, to expand our scope to all six New England states.
WHAT IS STAGESOURCE?
StageSource provides leadership and services to advance the art of theater in the Greater Boston and New England region. Our mission is to unite theater artists, theater companies, and related organizations in vision and goals that inspire and empower our community to realize its greatest artistic potential.
We believe that theater should be shaped by the diversity of the community it represents.
We drive sector improvement initiatives to build healthy work environments, foster challenging discussions on the issues impacting our community, and ultimately create a bigger table where every theater artist has a seat. We provide career training and networking opportunities to give New England theater practitioners a competitive edge in the job market, connect them to employment, and hold a bigger stake in the national theatre scene.
OUR SECRET SAUCE
We are working artists with deep connections and understanding of the unique needs and challenges of the New England theatre sector. We are hands-on problem solvers, conveners, and facilitators.
OUR CODE OF CONDUCT
We hold ourselves, our members, and everyone in our spaces to the following standards:
We strive to increase cultural participation for all—dismantling barriers and conducting interrogations of our work, embracing difficult questions that may make us uncomfortable—with a focus on empathy, kindness, and inextinguishable joy.
We endeavor to hold each other accountable in all spaces—trusting intent while naming impact, recognizing our personal and institutional privilege, respectfully acknowledging pushback, admitting when we are wrong, calling-in those with differing views. Doing so allows us to move forward thoughtfully, with a focus on reflection and growth.
HOW DOES STAGESOURCE WORK?
All StageSource staff is currently working remotely due to COVID-19.
StageSource's offices are located in the Fort Point area in the Midway Studios Building
