Speak Up is an initiative led by Irish Theatre Institute and supported by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media. Following the events and revelations in 2017/18 in relation to global abuses of power, the Irish theatre sector came together to begin a much-needed cultural change in behaviour. In time Speak Up became a cross-artform initiative.

SPEAK UP: A CALL FOR CHANGE- the online launch of a report commissioned by Irish Theatre Institute (ITI) as part of its Arts Sector Speak Up Dignity in the Workplace Initiative.

Join ITI for a presentation of key findings by the research team and an outline of the recommendations by Co-Leads, Siobhán Bourke and Jane Daly.

Launched by Catherine Martin T.D., Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.

The SPEAK UP: A CALL FOR CHANGE Report, researched by Dr. Ciara L. Murphy, Dr. Brenda Donohue, and Conall Ó Duibhir, with support from Dr. Peter Campbell and Olwen Dawe, is an analysis of the findings of Irish Theatre Institute’s 2021 SPEAK UP ACTiON survey of arts workers and their workplace experiences of bullying, harassment, sexual harassment, humiliation, victimisation, assault and sexual assault.
