ASTC - USITT Renovation Challenge Returns in 2023

June 16, 2022

The next installment of the ASTC-USITT Venue Renovation Challenge will occur during our Annual Conference & Stage Expo in St. Louis, March 15-18, 2023. The event is held in odd-numbered years, and will follow a successful, virtual presentation in 2021.

This is an excellent opportunity for university students to team with an ASTC mentor to learn more about the work and influence of a Theatre Consultant on performing arts spaces. This is a theoretical project, where students design a renovation or remodel of an existing venue. Projects are submitted electronically then presented in a live setting during USITT.

There are two cash prizes, the Edgar L. Lustig Honor Award, and the Director’s Award.

The details from the winning team in 2021 can be found here, with the full live event recording available below:

Full details on the Challenge are available at the ASTC website. Applications for the event are due on October 7, 2022, with a variety of milestone deadlines leading up to the March 2023 presentation.
