The Dunedin Collaborative Theatre Trust, which operates the New Athenaeum Theatre, was established in 2016 by a group of theatre practitioners who saw the need for a flexible, independent performance venue in Dunedin.
The New Athenaeum Theatre is destined to be a resource hub and central meeting space for theatre practitioners. We welcome local and touring artists to use the space as they need.
One of the the trust’s primary goals is not only to provide a venue for established companies, but also provide support to new ventures and emerging practitioners, creating theatre and performance opportunities.
The NAT is grateful to receive support from funders, donors, and volunteers. We are particularly grateful to the Dunedin City Council for their contribution of an annual City Service grant.
