Discounts, Scholarships, and Subsidies

Discounts: We look forward to supporting you and your colleagues in attending the conference in the most cost-effective way possible. Learn more about discount pricing

Scholarships and Subsidies: TCG has expanded opportunities for scholarship and subsidy support for registration to the 2024 conference. In alignment with TCG’s ongoing organizational efforts to center BIPOC and BITOC (Theatres of Color) as well as disability and TGNC communities, we will prioritize those who have been historically underrepresented at our conferences and throughout the field when determining scholarship and subsidy recipients. Opportunities for full and partial financial support will be available to organizational employees as well as independent practitioners. Learn more about available scholarships and subsidy opportunities.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Businesses registering to learn from the field or interested in providing fieldwide learning opportunities for member theatres are encouraged to consider joining as an event sponsor. TCG offers a variety of opportunities at different price points to align your business’ work and brand with TCG’s values. Every sponsorship plays an integral role in producing TCG events, including reducing financial barriers for theatre practitioners across the country. Contact Danika Tablante in our institutional philanthropy department ([email protected]) to discuss opportunities to support TCG in leading for a just and thriving theatre ecology.
