Today, along with 25+ other national touring companies, we launch The Anti-Racism Rider.
A step towards more equitable working conditions for touring shows & events, in response to personal testimonies & feedback from over 100 freelancers. You can read the Rider in full on the website:
The rider and accompanying checklist offers a series of actions for anti-racist practice, giving a framework to establish the baseline of expectations and support between stakeholders on a touring production.
It seeks to foster closer working relationships between companies & venues, with the intention of providing a standard of care & commitment from both theatres & producers. It aims to be applicable to any touring production or company, irrespective of scale or remit.
Supported by the Independent Theatre Council & UK Theatre, the 8 page document is available in the following. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like the Rider in any of these forms.
