One part of the Means of Production research and evaluation project is a thorough review of existing materials. This review began in earnest in May 2015, beginning with internal documents from both of the primary subject organizations, Why Not Theatre and STAF*. In order to place that information within a larger context, a concurrent review of recent research related to the performing arts, shared platforms, and other collaborative ventures is also underway.
The partners in this study have decided to share their working bibliography of related research, tools and materials as it develops and evolves, and welcome the community’s suggestions and additions.
* Note: the name of one of the subjects of this study has not been changed retroactively from its previous name (STAF) to the new name (Generator) in blog posts on this site in order to maintain timeline consistency.
