Means of Production


Means of Production is a collective of Production Managers and Technical Directors who have been working together to reexamine the way we build shows.

Means of Production is building a support network with shared resources for freelance Production Managers, Technical Directors, and related Arts Workers. We advocate for a safe, equitable, and supportive work culture rooted in creating the conditions for workers to thrive in the gig economy.

We engage in research, dialogue, outreach, and education to:

  • Promote a values-based approach to production
  • Address barriers to working in the field
  • Provide professional development and mentorship opportunities
  • Develop standards and guidelines for our work
  • Advocate for individual well-being and equitable pay
