We sponsored a Fi Fraser to be a part of the Freelance Task Force, which was established at the start of the pandemic. The Task Force is made up of self-employed people working in theatre and performance arts across the UK.

The purpose of the task force is to strengthen the influence of the self-employed theatre and performance community and to create ongoing points of connection between freelancers and organisations, and amplify the voice of the self-employed in the conversations to come.

We campaign to make Scottish Theatre an inclusive and safe space for women and girls. We are members of the Federation of Scottish Theatre, and sit on their Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion working group.

We are also members of the First Minister’s National Advisory Council for Women and Girls (NACWG). The NACWG was formed as a catalyst for change to advise the First Minister on what’s needed to tackle gender inequality in Scotland. Their report on Creating an Intersectional Gender Architecture was published last year. It makes five key recommendations for enacting systemic change for Scotland now and for future generations.
