Greetings from India Theatre Forum!

We are delighted to announce the launch of India’s very first management programme for theatre. A 10-day 

residential course followed by a 6-month mentorship by senior theatre practitioners. 

SMART is a programme to build capacity in theatre groups to think and work strategically, hence to be most 

effectual in whatever sphere of theatre they are working in. The aim is to enrich the field of theatre through 

building management capacities that support and enable the artistic dream. SMART is for those already 

working in the field who have the power to make a difference within their organisations. (SMART note 

SMART is brought to you by India Theatre Forum (ITF), a theatre network based on the concept of alliance, 

run by and for people committed to the growth of a vibrant theatre culture and practice in India. (Brief 

7 reasons why SMART is unique ...

* 1st ever theatre management training programme in India 

Never before has there been a management training programme dedicatedly focused on theatre in India.

* Addresses the dire need of the hour

Urban and semi-urban contemporary Indian theatre needs professional management that looks at the 

needs and realities of Indian theatre and responds to these realities to ensure the greatest possible 

effectiveness of theatre’s reach and possibilities.

* Built on indigenous knowledge

For the first time in India and perhaps in Asia, here is a programme that addresses the needs of theatre 

practice from the ground up. Informed by existing practices in India and taught by people with direct 

experience of working with the theatre and the arts in India, the programme borrows strategically from 

established management practices where necessary
