A discussion group examining workplace situations that arise in the performing arts and negatively impact people.
Have you been asked to work in a way that you don’t like or feel productive?
Have you ever witnessed someone speaking with intolerance and prejudice in the workplace?
By unpacking these topics we can identify broader industry problems and discuss what we can do about them on a personal and community level.
Hosted by Gala Moody and Michael Carter, OFEN Co-Arts Platform
"In planning these sessions, it wasn’t our aim to give a workshop or to teach a methodology, but the more we talked about these scenarios the more we realised that we do have certain methods which work for us. We want to share some of these ideas, and learn from yours, in the hope that this exchange can support our practices in some way and aid in advocating better working conditions." – OFEN Co-Arts Platform
The session is for open to everybody working in the performing arts sector.
Registration is compulsory.
