Artistic Vision

Here's the roughly 50-page Artistic Vision in its entirety. The google doc is interactive and includes a section at the end with questions that might come up. If you're reading in one sitting, I'd leave 45-60 minutes. No initiative or decision in this Vision stands alone; please do read the entire document carefully so you have a solid understanding of the transparent intentions, context and larger goals at play. This is also a great opportunity to gain a fuller appreciation for the incredible mission and scope of ImprovBoston today. Make note of questions and ideas as you go along so you can bring those to any upcoming Coffee Break.


Artistic Director, Mike Descoteaux, talks with the ImprovBoston Blog about the mission of this remarkable nonprofit organization. If you have questions about what we believe in, how we serve the community (both performers and audiences), and the importance of the work behind the laughs, this is a quick read you don't want to miss:

STAND-UP @ImprovBoston

Curious about ImprovBoston's unique approach to Stand-Up? This one sheet reflects the fantastic suggestions provided by our performers at Townhalls, in meetings with the artistic director and producers, etc. A more thorough picture of how Stand-Up features at IB is presented in the Artistic Vision. Any other suggestions, questions or ideas are always welcome.


Congrulations, IB! We have triumphantly reached the end of a nearly two-year long research, exploration and review period of our approach to intellectual property. Far from technocratic, this extended conversation solidifies the very principles we, as a community of artists, believe in. We also are able to confidently put in writing what it means to be a truly collaborative theater. We intend to use the current policy and contracts for years to come. However, if changes are needed to future contracts, IB is committed to continuing its work openly with the community to ensure everyone's rights are clearly laid out and protected.  Major gratitude goes to Ben Snitkoff, Will Luera, the Board and all those in the community who helped shape the IP Principles.

So what does this mean for me?  Show submitters will be asked to read through our IP Principles and confirm that they're on board with the plain-English concepts laid out to protect both the artist and IB's ability to continue providing opportunities. If submitters wish to dive into contracting (for instance, in the case of a proposed rental or an exclusive-run scripted musical), they will have that option. However, our goal is to keep the IP considerations as simple and positive as possible.
