is a component of GreenTheatre.net. It
has been created to function a lot like Craigslist, but
only for theatres. The purpose of it is to
allow theatres to share their resources.
No theatre can store everything that they produce for
long. Instead of throwing it away, keep
it just a little while, and see if another theatre can
use it. The
more theatres do this, the more stuff is available.
If you need something, post an ad. If
you have something useful that you don't want to store
for long, post it here. Give it away
or sell it, it's your choice - there's no sin in reclaiming
some of your invesment.
do I make this work?
You probably walk through storage when thinking about
your designs. You are looking for raw
materials and key elements. With more
and more theatres on GreenList, you can browse wider and
farther at this stage.
Know what you are looking for a little ahead of time. If
you don't see it listed, post a wanted ad. Make
sure the theatres in your region know what you are interested
Is it worth keeping? How often will you use
it? How bulky is it? Too many
years of too many big weird things can overload storage
in a theatre. Decide while you are making
it: Do we want it? If not, plan on storing
it long enough for somebody else who wants it to take
it. Decide how long you are willing to store
it until that happens.
1) Got design drawings? Scan them, digitize
them, convert them to jpegs.
2) Is it onstage now? Photograph
it! Your cell phone camera will do just fine! This
is not portfolio time, this is just a snapshot.
3) At strike, tag everything that you plan to GreenList
with a GREENLISTED tag, available
4) Put the item into your storage.
5) List the item on GreenList, Upload
the design drawings and digital photos if you have that
stuff. Otherwise, just write a nice description.
List it for free or for sale - your choice.
6) Keep it until someone claims it, or you are no
longer willing to store it.
fifty U.S. States are listed, and Ontario as well. All
of these have been grouped into regions based on regional
sections of USITT (The United States Institute for Theatre
Technology). Some states belong
to more than one region. Choose whichever region
you would like to include your ad in. You
may list your ad in more than one region in the same state.
