Respectful Workplaces in the Arts – Workshop

February 11, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


CineVic is pleased to partner with the Cultural Human Resources Council to bring their national tour of workshops to its only stop on Vancouver Island.

The Cultural Human Resources Council (CHRC) is working in collaboration with national arts service organizations and leaders in the sector to guide artists and arts organizations across the country towards preventing harassment of any kind, and to build respectful workplaces as the norm in the cultural sector. The Respectful Workplaces in the Arts workshop addresses harassment in the workplace, including sexual harassment, bullying, discrimination and violence. These workshops discuss and define harassment, workplace behaviours and Provincial legislation — the workshops are not, however, a legal advice session nor clinical counseling. They are discussions to bring forth better awareness on the subject and to provide resources towards optimal work environments.

Under the Respectful Workplaces in the Arts banner, CHRC’s Maintaining Respectful Workplaces workshops have been created to explore how to best deal with harassment situations through:

  • discussions of what IS and IS NOT a respectful workplace;

  • a review of situations and scenarios to identify how to create and sustain a respectful workplace; and

  • an in depth consideration of the roles of both employers and artists and cultural workers in establishing and maintaining a respectful workplace.

Tools and tips, including province/territory-specific legislation will be highlighted for both employers and artists and cultural workers to create and maintain a respectful workplace.
