Speak Up & Call It Out: Review

31 Oct 2019
11am - 1pm
Project Arts Centre, Temple Bar

What have we learned? Irish Theatre Institute invites you to attend a meeting on 31st October to discuss outcomes and feedback on the implementation of the Draft Code of Behaviour for Irish Theatre since its launch at the Speak Up & Call It Out event at Liberty Hall last March.

The meeting will hear from practitioners and companies who have piloted the Code in recent months – its effectiveness and implementation, its suitability and value. ITI wants to hear from you and to seek ratification from the sector for a formal adoption of the Code. Please join us in working collectively to stamp out Harrassment, Sexual Harassment and Bullying in Irish theatre.
