Ensuring labour that benefits the organization remains visible and acknowledged

The Nursery Theatre needs more assistance than it can fiscally afford. This volunteer policy is an attempt to capture the responsibilities (types of work effort). supports for the volunteer, and potential artistic pathways and skills that The Nursery will try to help you achieve through this work effort engagement.

Overall

During COVID-19, The Nursery Theatre is only operating online. Our programming content is either in a closed Zoom room, or from Zoom to a live stream on our social media platforms
