Why should I become a PACT Colleague?
Making theatre is hard! We often don’t have the resources we need and are constantly working under pressure. By becoming a PACT colleague you will have access to a supportive network of arts managers and practitioners whom you bounce ideas off of, share experiences and ask questions.
You will also be able to stay aware of hot topics and current events in the theatre industry. As well, you can replenish your energy and invest in yourself by joining our peer 2 peer calls or webinars on issues ranging from labour relations, to relaxed performances to creating safe and respectful workplaces.
