Parents and Carers in Performing Arts events

Parents and Carers in Performing Arts events

Are you working in the Performing Arts in Scotland? Do you have perspectives to share on working with caring responsibilities?

PiPA (Parents and Carers in Performing Arts) is working with partners across Scotland to establish regional networks of performing arts organisations and individual practitioners. The aim is to share best practice, insights and resources, and to establish local support for carers and parents. What do performing arts practitioners with caring responsibilities in your area need to make work work for them? What do organisations need to support them? These action-oriented networks are a great opportunity to get brilliant creative minds in the room together to make a real difference.

These free, child-friendly and informal events are for local theatre, music and dance companies (of all scales), as well as individual/independent artists and practitioners to gather and develop action plans with PiPA and the host partner.

PiPA raises awareness of the challenges facing carers and parents working in performing arts. They work in partnership with over 50 leading Dance, Music and Theatre organisations across the UK, providing resources and opportunities to increase business resilience through family friendly working practices.
