Theatre Network Victoria

Theatre Network Victoria (TNV) advocates for the professional theatre industry with a focus on strengthening the independent and small to medium sectors, and increasing connection between all parts of the industry. TNV was founded by the Victorian theatre sector in early 2009 and continues to receive its core funding through Arts Victoria and the Australia Council for the Arts.

TNV has been the ‘steward’ of the Australian Theatre Forum since 2009 and has since produced the 2011 ATF, 2013 ATF and now the 2015 ATF.

Based in Melbourne, TNV is a national service organisation whose principal goals include:

LEADERSHIP – To be the leading industry service organisation for the professional theatre sector.

CONNECTION – To increase connection and dialogue within and between all those involved in professional theatre making in Australia, and those we wish to influence and inspire.

VOICE – To be a voice for the theatre sector and to help the sector articulate its own voice.

KNOWLEDGE – To build and share a body of knowledge about theatre with our members, our colleagues, our partners, government and others.
