New report created in collaboration with Central School of Speech & Drama

Tonic has been collaborating with the Research department at Central School of Speech and Drama. Together, we’ve been conducting research into the needs and concerns of young adults who are looking to enter or develop careers in arts administration at this time. 

We know that today’s cohort of young adults have experienced a particularly complex set of challenges and disruption to their learning, social experiences and opportunities to develop work experience. The purpose of our research was to understand the impact of this in young adults in greater detail and appreciate what this means for them as they take their preliminary steps into the world of work.

We hosted an event on 14th May 2024 at the Park Theatre in London to present our insights and launch a report of our findings. The report contains recommendations and support to employers in the arts so that they can be confident they are providing their youngest employees with the working environments and experiences they need to be able to thrive.

The report can be found here.
