More Links

I've added some links to the site, these ones with more of a socio-economic bent to them.

First of all, there's a link to the Theatre Communications Group, the 800 lb. gorilla when it comes to organizations working with the regional theatre scene. The amount of research they have compiled over the years is truly enormous, and they were an immensely helpful resource to me while writing my thesis. Since my last post was examining different perspectives on the current environment of regional theatre, I thought I'd also throw this link up to a fairly short but meaty article that TCG produced. It's a few years old at this point, but it's still full of interesting tidbits.

Moving on, there are some sites dealing with theatre at a smaller scale than the regional houses. There's the Community Arts Network, which is just about the best web resource available on the burgeoning field of community-based arts. It's purview includes all of the arts, but theatre still features prominently on the site. Also there's this blog for the Less than 100k Project, started by Scott Walters and intended to gather and implement strategies on creating successuful and sustainable arts organizations and theatre companies in non-metropolitan areas. This is a subject particularly dear to me, and Scott already has quite a few exciting ideas floating around his site, and there promise to be many more. Definitely check it out.
