We Support Caregivers
in the Performing Arts
The aim of Balancing Act is to create increased equality, accessibility, and inclusion for parents and caregivers※ working in the performing arts. We collaborate with artists, arts workers, and arts organizations to develop pathways for change at an individual, organizational and systemic level.
Balancing Act is an initiative of Theatre Direct.
※ Balancing Act’s definition of caregiver includes individuals who care for children, older adults, those in need of personal care, and anyone who self-identifies as a caregiver.
