Overview
The African American Theater Alliance for Independence (AATAIN) is a fiscally sponsored project of Cultural Odyssey. AATAIN is consortium of organizations based in San Francisco that create work that reflect the African American experience. Within the context of continued displacement of the African American community from San Francisco, this unique capacity building initiative will work closely with the AATAIN consortium, specifically the African American Art and Culture Complex (AAACC) and its resident companies: African American Shakespeare Company, PUSH Dance Company, AfroSolo Theater, and Cultural Odyssey (current grantee). The aim of this project is to develop AATAIN’s capacity to increase earned revenue by expanding audiences and increasing ticket sales. This capacity building project consists of two phases of work: 1) Technology Assessment and Implementation, and 2) Box Office Development and Marketing Planning. Phase one will ensure that all cohort member organization have baseline tech capacities that will allow them to develop a marketing plan and implement a shared "box office solution" for AAACC’s resident performing companies.
