New Survey Aims to Understand Issues Faced by Students in the Performing Arts

The Musicians’ Union (MU) has launched a joint initiative with the Incorporated Society of Musicians and Equity, to help make  higher education a safe and positive experience for everyone.

The three representative organisations are holding an anonymous and confidential survey. The survey is aimed at students over 18, who are studying music or drama courses at higher education institutions in the UK.

Through their answers we hope to come to a better understanding of the issues confronting students, and identify what needs to happen to improve matters.

This action comes in the wake of concerns regarding sexual harassment, discrimination and other inappropriate behaviour in the performing arts industry.

We have heard from our student members about issues relating to the culture within higher education institutions and the lack of awareness around the policies and procedures in place.

If you are 18 years or older, and studying in a university or specialist college, please take part in our survey.

Support #DignityinStudy further by sharing the survey on twitter.
