Strategic Aim

Provide Supports to the Cultural and Creative Sector

Project Description

Dignity is an essential part of the visual arts ecology. A workplace that values dignity and respect can lead to greater creativity, diversity, productivity, and overall wellbeing for all employees. The workplace should be a safe and respectful environment where all individuals are treated with dignity and respect, regardless of their position or background.

Safe to Create is a Dignity at Work programme. The aim of the programme is to impact change on the culture and practices of the arts sector in Ireland to provide safer working conditions for artists and arts workers.

Safe to Create Working Group and Implementation Team member Niamh O’Donnell outlined resources and information relevant to visual artists.
