ATAP is a network of archivists, dramaturgs, and scholars dedicated to preserving the legacy of the American theatre operating under an initiative of the American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR).  Through the ATAP Initiation Program, location-based teams work with individual theatre companies to evaluate their records, develop an archiving plan, and secure funding to support long-term archive health.  Once established and made accessible to theatre makers, scholars, patrons, and funders on premises online, and/or in a repository, a theatre’s archives support institutional integrity and development.  ATAP currently has active teams throughout the United States, and training sessions for team members have been conducted in Austin, Baltimore, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Seattle and Portland.
