ASTC USITT Venue Renovation Challenge 2019

American Society of Theatre Consultants (ASTC) and USITT are pleased to announce the fifth collaborative project between university students and ASTC member theatre consultants.  Projects will be presented at the USITT 2019 Annual Conference in Louisville, Kentucky - March 20-23, 2019. By working together with a professional theatre consultant as a mentor, students will learn more about how venues are designed or renovated. Students will see performance spaces differently and therefore will be exposed to other available career paths within the entertainment industry.

Dates to keep in mind:

  • Applications Due: Oct. 26, 2018, 5:00 p.m. EST
  • Team Concept Statements Due: Nov. 9, 2018, 5:00 p.m. EST
