What is TENT?
The Theatre Entrepreneurs’ Networking and Training (TENT) empowers the next cohort of independent producers. It was created in 2014 because many theatre schools prioritized craft—acting, directing, and writing. TENT filled an important gap by providing emerging artists essential skills that often take years of industry practice to master – this includes fundraising, marketing, managing budgets, and grant-writing. The 12-day program features workshops facilitated by experienced professionals and pairs participants with industry mentors. TENT ensures that the next generation has the skills needed to pursue a successful career in the performing arts as “Artrepreneurs.”
