Member Services and Benefits
All of our member services have been developed with the input and feedback of member theatres and are designed to meet the specific needs of the field in New Jersey.
If you are on staff at an Alliance member theatre, we hope that you will take advantage of these offerings! As always, if there are ways that the Alliance could be of additional help and support, please reach out to us for a conversation.
Marketing & Promotion
The Alliance maintains an email list of over 11,000 patrons, who receive a newsletter every two weeks outlining upcoming performances, events, and special offers at member theatres.
The Alliance maintains a robust social media presence with a growing following of over 10,000 people. Social media posts promote performances and events, feature Alliance initiatives, and amplify the social presence of our members.
Interpreter and Audio Description Training
We work to build the pool of qualified cultural access professionals by offering training for ASL interpretation and audio description.
Grants & Awards
Two organizations receive Cultural Access Innovator Awards each year at the Excellence in Cultural Acces Awards. Awards come with statewide recognition and $500 to support their work. Nominations open in March for all New Jersey arts and cultural organizations.
Awards of Excellence
Awards of Excellence are presented at the annual Curtain Call celebration to individuals chosen by member theatres. These awards honor staff, volunteers, trustees, or funders of member theatres who have made an important impact.
Pandemic Relief Grants
Throughout the pandemic, the Alliance raised and distributed over $250,000 in the form of grants to theatres to support hiring COVID Compliance Officers, reimbursement for PPE, cleaning, and testing supplies, and relief grants to theatre workers. As the negative effects of the pandemic continue, the Alliance will look for all opportunities to secure and distribute funds that support the recovery of our members.
