Ambassadors Council

NNPN’s Ambassadors Council is comprised of artists and patrons that champion NNPN and its programs across the country, forging for the Network a national community of committed new play-makers and supporters.

Members of the Ambassadors Council advise the Network on issues relating to their area of expertise, advocate on behalf of the Network in their home communities, educate other new play colleagues and aficionados about NNPN programming, and support their home theater’s participation in NNPN programs and events. Each NNPN Core Member theater nominates one local donor and one local artist to the Council and keeps those two seats filled. The Network, as a body, also nominates At Large Ambassadors.
