Launched in 2015, the Soul Producing Residency Program is a training program working to empower the next generation of producers, general managers, and curators of the future. Through a 8-month residency, NBT give a Black producer a place to call NBT home. Through this program, we seek to help give artists of color the opportunity to have real time experience to learn and develop the skills and network needed to produce in NYC.

The residency culminates is a self produced one day event with the full support of institution at the residences disposal under the guidance of Theatre Arts Director.
