ITRC Final Report available online

An EquiFlash posting recently went out on this topic, but I'm posting it here for those who subscribe to this blog.

Council recently received the final committee report for the Independent Theatre Review Committee, and will be drafting final policy for passage by February. The report can be found here. Policy recommendations will be posted soon, with final policy notification expected shortly after they are complete.

These policy changes will form the core instructions for staff to begin changes to the existing engagement policies. Our Executive Director, Arden R. Ryshpan, anticipates being able to share a draft with Council once CTA negotiations are substantially complete in mid-spring. Wider distribution for feedback will follow shortly afterward. So that implementation is not unduly delayed while new agreements are finalised, staff will also look for ways to recognise the policy changes within the existing agreements on an interim basis.

Enormous thanks are due to the committee members, and to all members, staff and engagers who took the time to complete the survey.
