PiPA (Parents and Carers in Performing Arts) are conducting research in collaboration with Birbeck University of London. They are interested in hearing from all workers in music, opera, dance and theatre, and both those with caring responsibilities and those currently without.
The industry has changed beyond recognition since PiPA’s previous Balancing Act survey in 2018, through Covid and the cost-of-living crisis. Regardless of whether people have caring responsibilities or not, life can’t be an afterthought and the data from this survey will help PiPA talk to government, employers, industry bodies and advocate for better resources and work-life balance for all.
Take the survey.
About the survey
PiPA will ask a list of questions about you and your work, such as where and how you typically work or perform, who supports you and how you feel about your work; the survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. The survey will analyse broad data trends, so your individual data will not be identifiable from any analysis.
The data will be presented at a PiPA conference, summarised in a practitioner report and also provide the basis for an academic publication so that they can help put focus on the concerns and needs of those working in the arts.
