Performing Arts Training Workbook

A practical resource for Guarding Against Misuse of Power and Inappropriate Behaviour in Learning and Working Environments

Tonic has created this workbook for drama schools, conservatoires, universities and colleges that provide performing arts training. It is designed to support these institutions to have a robust set of policies, processes and mechanisms in place to guard against misuse of power and inappropriate behaviour.

This document is shared by us as a digital Word doc. This is to ensure it is the most malleable to institutions’ needs. Anyone using it should see it as a proposal of how you may approach this and as a stimulus for deeper thought and wider conversation within your institution. But you should also feel free to cut and paste, add, take away and generally make it your own.

This workbook supplements Participate, our practical workshop series for performing arts students and their teachers.
