ATLAS (Advanced Training Leading Artists to Success) gives actors, directors, and playwrights invaluable tools to develop their career plans.
Since the program's inception in 2008, ATLAS has trained hundreds of theatre-makers in crucial career skills such as time management, goal setting and financial matters. In 2013, the program offered its first round of training to playwrights, complementing existing programming for actors and directors. Each round typically contains 20-40 artists.
The ATLAS program is designed to meet the needs of theatre artists wishing to go from "Point A" to "Point B" in their careers—wherever their "Point A" might be. In other words, this is intended for all artists: emerging and mid-career, as well as established artists looking for something new in their careers

• About ATLAS
For an enrollment fee of $300, Theatre Bay Area's ATLAS instructors lead participating artists through 17 hours of training, networking and peer group work, intensive self-reflection and goal setting exercises. ATLAS also gives these artists information about the Bay Area theatre landscape and access to valuable feedback mechanisms for his/her work.
ATLAS participants are guided through a process of writing a comprehensive plan for their own professional development, called a "career map." The purpose of the ATLAS work is to complete this map so that participants can identify the steps that they can take to move forward in their career. Additionally, all ATLAS participants will assemble their own advisory boards, made up of people they already know who can bring perspective to a particular part of their continuing career development.
Any ATLAS participant may choose to submit his/her career map for consideration for a Titan Award. The Titan Award, presented to up to three artists per round, provides each winner a small grant to help implement his/her ATLAS career map, as well as a year-long mentorship with a professional chosen by the Titan Award winner. Finalists for the Titan Award also receive a mentorship.
