Balancing Act: Work/Life Survey


Parents In Performing Arts (PiPA) and Birkbeck, University of London are collaborating in a large first-of-its-kind survey across the Performing Arts workforce to help us understand people’s experience in their current roles.

The data analysis will be undertaken by Birkbeck and will help PIPA to work towards securing increased provision for those with caring responsibilities, achieving greater flexibility in working practices for all and reviewing current policy to have the widest possible impact on the Dance, Music, Opera and Theatre sectors.

In order to get the most accurate representation of the sector it is vital that as many carers, parents and non-parents take part; please take 15 minutes of your time to complete the questions.

We are also a strategic partner with PiPA (Parents in Performing Arts), who campaign to enable and empower parents, carers and employers to achieve sustainable change in attitudes and practices in order to attract, support and retain a more diverse and flexible workforce. We are always happy to discuss solutions that allow people to balance their caring responsibilities with their working lives, for example through job shares or flexible working arrangements.
