Following the outpouring of #MeToo stories from people who have experienced sexual harassment and abuses of power in the creative industries, Re-Live with support from Sherman Theatre will curate a bilingual event in which stories on this subject are heard for the first time in Wales.
The stories will be read by actors to an audience in the Sherman Theatre. The stories will have all names, sensitive information and identifying details redacted, ensuring confidentiality and removing legal risk.
The aim of the event is to provide an opportunity for these stories to be witnessed by an audience followed by a discussion on how we work together to bring about change in the creative industries in Wales.
Since we launched #MeToo Wales on Wednesday we have received a number of powerful testimonies. The writers of the stories have shown great courage in speaking out and have sensitively avoided naming individuals, themselves, organisations etc.. What is clear is the honesty of their experiences and the need for these stories to be heard.
The event is not to name and shame, it’s about giving people a platform to share their experiences of abuses of power and sexual harassment so there can be a positive change to our working culture in Wales.
We would really appreciate your support in spreading the word to ensure as many people as possible working or studying in the creative industries in Wales gets the opportunity to influence the change we all want to see.
Will you be able to join us on Saturday 25 Nov? I can put aside a ticket for you.
