TNA endorses the Theatre Network NSW (TNN) Code of Behaviour.
The code is based on the Royal Court Theatre’s Code of Behaviour from the UK and published in response to our theatre sector’s demand and hope for culture change to prevent sexual harassment and abuses of power. Published by TNN as a living document in which the sector is encouraged to respond to, this code has been developed as an initiative of the NSW Theatre Producers Working Group, which includes members of whyareyouwinkingatme and MEAA’s National Performers’ Committee. As a living Code of Behaviour, sector revision and addition of this code is to be expected.
We also commend and support Australia’s independent companies and practitioners’ statement of solidarity as seen on social media.

TNA is committed to zero tolerance of any behaviour of abuse of power, sexual assault and harassment within the sector and in the community, and will continue to work together with our colleagues to end the culture of silence at all levels.
