ARTISTIC ADVISORY BOARD

The Artistic Advisory Board assists in actively expanding The COOP’s community of playwrights, designers, directors, and actors. Their guidance helps The COOP diversify its network of voices and make informed programming decisions.

YOUTH ADVISORY BOARD

The Youth Advisory Board meets regularly as a group and is in direct dialogue with senior artistic staff and the Board of Directors. The voices of these playwrights, theatre makers, and future artistic leaders (aged 18–25) offer a highly valued contribution to conversations around season programming, marketing strategies, and audience engagement. We are dedicated to creating a theatre company that the next generation will want to inherit.

We are accepting applications for the YAB. If interested, please reach out to Colleen Litchfield (YAB Chair) at colleen@thecoopnyc.org.
