Tandem: TG's Outreach Program

Creating Space for Conversation.  Let’s Talk.

Finding your place in New York City’s theatre industry can feel like a free-fall.  But whether it’s a job in a black box or Broadway, every theatre-maker faces a similar set of challenges.  Tandem, Transport Group’s outreach program, creates space where discussion about these challenges happens – an environment that supports a peer-to-peer exchange of ideas. From recent grads to seasoned Broadway vets, Tandem aims to bring fellow artists together and remove the mystery around the theatre industry, inviting conversation that inspires action.   How do freelancers make their funds last between gigs?  How can we better sustain a work-life balance?  When is “no” more powerful than “yes” and vice versa?

We are each other’s best resource, and Tandem is here to let you make the most of it.
