The Shared Inventory is a single, shared online inventory (using a software called StageStock). Theatre companies, freelancers, and individual producers can utilize this software to organize and share their separate inventories of props, costumes, lighting instruments, etc. Theatre-makers looking for items can search the entire inventory at once, and then connect with the item owners to arrange to borrow or rent the items.
The Shared Inventory has been accomplished in partnership with Philadelphia Theatre's Resource Sharing Committee. The Resource Sharing Committee is a group of theater professionals from across the Philadelphia region who have come together to envision and organize resource-sharing initiatives for performing arts institutions and individual artists in the Philadelphia area. The RSC aims to reduce waste, increase cross-company conversation, and create more avenues for sharing the community’s resources. They strive to make the Philadelphia performing arts sector radically innovative, equitable, and sustainable. They are guided by the value of generosity.
