Discussion groups – How Do You respond?
“How Do You Respond?” is a series of ongoing discussion groups examining workplace situations which arise in the performing arts and negatively impact people.
Developed and run by OFEN Co-Arts Platform, we bring common topics to discuss that will be familiar to anyone, in any function, working in the dance industry. During the discussions, we’ll unpack scenarios together and identify broader industry themes which relate to the situation. We will discuss how we can respond in situations while respecting our needs, including autonomy, body sovereignty and rest.
Each discussion group can last from 1.5 hours up to a full day or multiple days. Sessions can be organised as a one-off event focusing on a specific situation or as a series of regular sessions to allow for a broader scope of topics.
The aim is that this exchange can support your practice, or your leadership, in some way and aid in advocating for better working conditions in dance.
