During TCG's 50th anniversary year, we crafted a new vision statement to propel us through the next fifty years. The statement envisions a future where participation in theatre will be widely recognized as a right of every individual, a necessity for every community, and a uniting force nationally and internationally. To set this vision in motion, TCG launched a strategic plan focused on: transforming inequities in our field and broader culture; empowering new, more frequent, and increased theatre attendance and community participation; and catalyzing theatre people to collaborate with each other and TCG in new and impactful ways.
To empower new, more frequent, and increased theatre attendance and community participation, TCG's strategic plan launched the Audience (R)Evolution program with support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. Now in its second round, Audience (R)Evolution is a four-stage program to study, promote, and support successful audience engagement and community development models through research, convenings, grantmaking, and widespread dissemination of learnings.

To transform the inequities in our field and broader culture, TCG's strategic plan featurs a multi-year, six-point Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) Initiative. Programs include the EDI Institute, the SPARK Leadership Program, and Legacy Leaders of Color Video Project. Through this work, we seek to transform the theatre field into a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive community, providing a model for change on a societal level.

To catalyze theatre people to collaborate with each other and TCG in new and impactful ways, our strategic plan has evolved an initial focus on serving theatre people into Theatre Nation. By supporting the mobilization of practitioners with shared affinities into cohorts connected to TCG, Theatre Nation seeks to harness the nimbleness of small group action with the resources of an international movement. Prototypes of these cohorts include: Actor Activists, National Theatre Service Organizations, Production Staffs, Theatres of Color, and University Training Programs.
