Terms and Conditions for Full Membership

WIT activities are overseen by a collective of incorporated, professional, non-profit theatre companies based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The companies that manage WIT initiatives (i) produce theatre annually; (ii) are incorporated or have registered names; (iii) are run by professional artists who view the discipline as a vocation and are beyond basic levels of training; (iv) operate with limited budgetary support and staff, and (v) do not own their own production facilities. 

 

Membership Fees

Membership fees for Full Members are $50 for the year, and will be collected at the start of the calendar year in January.

Member Expectations

WIT holds meeting every 6 weeks and it is encouraged that a representative of each member company be present whenever possible. 

Task Teams

Each member company is encouraged to have a representative join a task team that will meet throughout the year to focus on specific goals of the organization ie: Marketing and Events, Communications with Partner Organizations. 

Terms and Conditions for Associate Membership

Winnipeg Independent Theatre also offers Associate Membership to emerging professional theatre companies in Winnipeg. These companies must meet the criteria for Full Membership including: (i) produce theatre annually; (ii) are incorporated or have registered names; (iii) are run by professional artists who view the discipline as a vocation and are beyond basic levels of training; (iv) operate with limited budgetary support and staff, and (v) do not own their own production facilities. 

The goal of WIT Members is to pay staff and creative teams professional rates. However, with emerging professional companies who are newer in the industry this may not yet be a possibility. Therefore, Associate Membership will be based on what they are aspiring to rather than where they are in this process.

Associate Membership fees will be $25 annually and Associate Members will receive all the benefits of Full Membership without the voting rights. Associate Members will also need to meet Members Expectations and work on Task Teams. Winnipeg Independent Theatre sees the value in having all sectors of the Independent Theatre Community represented and part of our collective.
