Stripped down to its essence, this study is investigating two questions. Why Not Theatre’s RISER Project is asking, “What can a community do (to leverage the community’s resources)?”, while Generator (formerly STAF – the Small Theatre Administrative Facility) is asking, “What can the individual or collective do (to leverage one’s own resources)?”
Welcome to the Means of Production site: an ongoing documentation of the process of answering these questions, and an evaluation of the results.
The final year of this research and evaluation study will be conducted by Helen Yung; the initial iteration was evaluated by Sherri Helwig of S.L. Helwig & Associates. The evaluation is administered through the Toronto Arts Foundation, and generously supported by the Metcalf Foundation and Toronto Arts Foundation.
