University Women in the Arts and Sphinx Theatre Company will offer free advice to female arts students and women wanting to work in the arts on how to deal with harassment and bullying in the arts industry, following the recent case involving film producer Harvey Weinstein.
The advice will be part of University Women in the Arts and Sphinx’s joint event at the Hampstead Theatre.
Jennifer Tuckett, Director of University Women in the Arts said: “The recent cases involving Harvey Weinstein and others have shone a light on abuse and harassment taking place in the arts industry. Many of these cases have involved women beginning their careers in the arts industry. As such, we want to use our November 4th event with Sphinx Theatre Company to offer
advice on how to deal with, and eliminate, bullying and harassment in the arts industry, as well as offering more general advice to women wanting to work in the arts”.
The event will also offer advice to any woman wanting to work in the arts on managing their career and making their way in the arts industry.
There will also be a special small group session at 1pm for female arts students and other women wanting to work in the arts who would like to be involved in creating a mentoring pack for universities across the UK to use to mentor female arts students on how to deal with bullying and harassment in the arts industry.
