We Support Caregivers
in the Performing Arts

The aim of Balancing Act is to create increased equality, accessibility, and inclusion for parents and caregiversβ€» 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.


β€» 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.

Thank you to everyone who joined and participated in the Little Labours Creation Workshop in June!

A very special and big THANK YOU to Intisar Awisse for leading the workshop!

This four-session workshop, led by theatre-maker, playwright, dramaturg, and editor Intisar Awisse, was for parents/caregivers looking to return to their artistic practice in a meaningful way as the process embraces the small acts of creation (little labours), however fragmentary or piecemeal, that are necessary to maintaining an artistic practice while caring for others.
