The Executive Committee of the American Theatre Archive Project would like to thank all of the theatre companies nationwide who applied for the 2016 Initiation Program Grant. Applications will be reviewed over the next month, and the recipient of the 2016 grant will be announced at the annual conference of the American Society of Theatre Research in Minneapolis on November 5 and here on our website.

The month-long ATAP Initiation Program places an archivist-documentarian team with a theatre company to assess records of historical value and formally establish archives. ATAP-assisted companies include ArtsWest (Seattle), Atlantic Theater Company (NYC), the Baltimore Theatre Project, Book-It Repertory Theatre (Seattle), Cherry Lane Theatre (NYC), HERE (NYC), Jobsite Theatre (Tampa), New York Theatre Workshop, Rude Mechs (Austin), Seattle Shakespeare Company, Teatro Vivo (Austin), and ZACH Theatre (Austin).

Applications for the 2017 Initiation Program Grant will be open next summer, contingent on available funding.
