OUR PHILOSOPHY

The Network is an organization in New York City providing theatre, film and TV actors 

the opportunity to meet and connect with agents, managers and casting directors 

in a safe, professional and creative environment.


Through THE SOURCE as well as through weekly seminars, workshops and Q&A sessions, The Network affords artists of all levels one-on-one opportunities to present work, receive training, and expand their professional network.

 

With an open door policy, The Network serves as a hub that can be used to seek out advice, information, and coaching from our staff and associates. We strive to maintain a level of integrity, honesty and a commitment to the needs and success of the individual that is unique to any other service of its kind.

OUR WORKSHOPS AND SEMINARS

We have weekly intensive workshops that feature New York City's top casting directors, agents, and managers. Most of our workshops offer in-depth Q+A, followed by one-on-one in a group setting, receiving feedback and ample opportunity to work their stuff!

Our seminars pan out over a few weeks, where actors and industry work together to grow their craft into something amazing. We have seminars for indie and feature film, TV/ episodic work, commercials, writing, you name it!

Our actors always leave with a connection to the industry

with which to build and strengthen their career!
