Toronto Arts Foundation is seeking a consultant to conduct a research and evaluation study of two collaborative ventures in Toronto’s theatre sector.
Why Not Theatre has created the Riser Project to foster collaboration and sharing of resources between small independent producers and larger theatre companies. Small Theatre Administrative Facility (STAF) is changing directions by moving away from providing grant writing and marketing services and towards building skills and capabilities of independent theatre producers.
The consultant will work with the two companies and their stakeholders over a 2 year period. The objectives are to:
• offer program evaluation and recommendations to Why Not Theatre and STAF;
• document lessons learned and outcomes for broader circulation; and
• support innovation, capture knowledge and share best practices.
Research findings will benefit Why Not Theatre, STAF, the larger performing arts community, and funders.
This research and evaluation project is made possible through a partnership between Toronto Arts Foundation and Metcalf Foundation.
