Case for Change
From actors to visual artists, workers in the creative industries are at times required to work with difficult and confronting material in their day-to-day activities. Confronting material is often experienced in roles requiring method acting, intimate scenes, confronting artistic exhibitions, traumatic content/scenes that occur in screen productions as well as confronting material seen or experienced during live broadcast and media. The concern is that workers in the sector are not always equipped with the skills to identify these risks, to understand and know how to respond, manage and work effectively with the confronting material. This has a significant impact on the prevalence of anxiety, stress, depression, sleep disorders which is already experienced at a high rate in the industry.
Training product development
- create one unit of competency to address skills required to work with confronting material and processes in the creative industries.
Project Status: The Case for Change has been reviewed and approved by the Australian Industry and Skills Commission (AISC) to proceed to training package development.
On behalf of our Culture and Related Industries teams and the respective Industry Reference Committee Members, we would like to thank all stakeholders who contributed to these projects!
