About

Mission Statement

The Theatre Leadership Project seeks to create lasting change in the American Theatre by installing BIPOC leadership in the industry.

THE INITIATIVE

Focused on producing, general management, company management and stage management, The Theatre Leadership Project seeks to transform and strengthen American theatre by investing in mentorships, training, job placement, and long-term support for Black creatives in key leadership positions. TTLP will provide a compensation package, including healthcare and a moving stipend. TTLP will have funds available for additional bespoke needs that address barriers to participation for chosen candidates. Through intentional partnerships with mainly Black-led organizations, TTLP is committed to helping bring about the change so needed in the field and that commitment is long-term.

Who We are

The Project is a new alliance between industry leaders in entertainment and Broadway commercial producers in support of a three-year pilot program for new, emerging, and transitioning professionals. Whilst the fund is committed to the support of BIPOC leadership, the initial pilot program will focus on Black applicants due to the extremity to which they are excluded.

HISTORY

The Theatre Leadership Project was established in 2020. We are fiscally and organizationally sponsored by the Entertainment Industry Fund (EIF) who has a long history of managing charity organizations. Founded in 1943, the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) is a multifaceted organization that occupies a unique place in the world of philanthropy. Whilst TTLP is committed to the support of BIPOC leadership, the initial pilot program will focus on Black applicants due to the extremity to which they are excluded.
