GWDC is thrilled to be a 2022/2023 strategy partner for Level UP!, a program from Balancing Act that invites select organizations to explore and pilot specific strategies that forefront more inclusive, case-led workplace policies and practices. Balancing Act, produced by Theatre Direct, is an initiative that aims to support a sector wide culture shift by advocating for a rethinking of how we both enact and support care in artistic environments.
GWDC is participating in the program’s Pathways To Agreement Strategy, which explores supportive conversations between organizations and artists who identify as caregivers. Through dialogue and resources provided by Level UP! we will be creating a model for engaging with caregivers in our community and plan to draft and embed caregiver support policy and contractual agreements into the day to day workings of GWDC. Stay tuned for updates on our participation in this program!
