WHAT we do

How we’re bridging the gap...

The CGA creates resources to aid arts organizations and individuals in the design, construction, and production of ecologically responsible theatre. Through the development of a comprehensive guidebook, and the use of Alliance green ambassadors within each theatre, the CGA guides arts organizations towards sustainable choices from their front of house to their backstage.  As the Canadian arts community has specialists in many areas of the greenification of theatre, the CGA is the meeting place for conversation, dissemination of ideas, and formation of key partnerships.
