This initiative is part of a pilot research strand run by National Theatre of Scotland, one of 15 UK partners, in conjunction with the Parents in Performing Arts (PIPA) Best Practice Research Project. The overall aim of the research is to identify barriers facing carers working in the performing arts, and to investigate practical ways of reducing them. The outcome will be a Best Practice Charter to be embedded in the Family Arts Standards.
Parents in Performing Arts campaigns for equal opportunities and access for parents and carers working in the performing arts. It aims to achieve sustainable change in attitudes and practices in order to attract, support and retain a more diverse and flexible workforce. A full list of PIPA’s aims and objectives can be found at http://www.pipacampaign.com/manifesto/ The National Theatre of Scotland is committed to supporting the community of people in the arts with caring responsibilities, initially through dialogue and research, to seek solutions to achieve greater participation in the industry.
