Check out #NETdate selfies on

Twitter / Facebook / Instagram


NET wants to see hundreds of "dates" occur between ensemble practitioners and co-creators across the country -- and it’s on us!  


Match Up!

- Find a person (or group) that you’d like to get to know or have a conversation with about co-creation. This could be a new friend or colleague, a local politician, and artist from another discipline, a visiting artist, etc. 

- Invite them to meet you for a beverage. NET will pick up the tab ($10/person).

- Not sure who to meet? Check out the NET member list and send a direct message. 

Meet Up!

- Talk shop and discuss ensemble practice and co-creation. Basically get to know one another! 

- Snap a selfie or take a video and post on Twitter, Instagram or the NET Facebook Group (please set your post to "public")

- Wherever you share, be sure to include the hashtag #NETdate

Get Reimbursed! 

- As the “inviter” report on your date using this form.

- Get your money! NET will send your money via PayPal or check after we receive the completed form.


Does my date have to be a member of NET?

No! Invite anyone you would like to get to know.

Can it be a "group date"? 

Yes, invite as many people as you'd like. We are able to reimburse you for up to four (4) people for a total of $40 per "group date".

Do we have to live in the same city?

No, plan a meeting while you are traveling.

Can a #NETdate happen online?

Sure. Make it a Skype date!

Is there a cap on the number of dates I can set up?

No, set up as many dates as you'd like, but in order to keep it equitable you can only submit four (4) reimbursements per year. 

Have even more questions? Email us at: help@ensembletheaters.net



Please note: There is a limited amount of funding for this program. Reimbursement requests will be first-come first-served. We will put out a "last call" when funds are close to running out. 

This is an experiment that came out of our recent participation in the EmcArts Innovation Lab. Our findings will help us better understand how NET can activate conversations about co-creation in the biggest, broadest sense.
