About the LTDS

The Latvian Theatre Workers’ Union (LTDS), is a non-governmental organization uniting professional theatre employees. The aims of the union are the preservation, promotion and development of Latvian theatre culture, the protection of the professional, economic and social interests of its members and the raising the prestige of theatre professionals in Latvia. The union represents the common professional, economic and social interests of its members in state, local governments and other institutions and organizations. With 580 members, the LTDS is one of the largest creative unions in the Latvian Council of Creative Unions.

Social involvement

One of the activities of the LTDS is improving the social well-being of the relevant poor and financially and socially disadvantaged groups. For years, the union has been taking care of its veteran members, both by organizing paid excursions around Latvia and by providing the opportunity to attend theatre performances covering the expenses for entrance tickets as well as offering rooms for veterans' monthly meetings. The union, to its greatest possible extent, offers financial support to its members, often from low-income groups. In 2008, the initiative of the LTDS and LaPAA served to establish the “Latvian Theatre Community Support Fund”, aimed to attract financial resources (donations) in order to provide material support to financially disadvantaged stage artists.

From April 22, 2016, the “Latvian Theatre Community Support Fund”, henceforth called “RAMPA” (the legal name – “RAMPA A” Fund). The Chairperson of the Board since March 8, 2016, is Anna Klēvere (Melbārde), an actress of the National Theatre.  The Board members are  Lelde Dreimane, Zane Dombrovska, Vilis Daudziņš, Māra Dzene.
