DATA COLLECTION

Annual data collection enables SWAP’ra to build an argument and monitor the rate of change each year. Not only does this put pressure on organisations to diversify their workforces, but it enables us set progress benchmarks and map the impact that advocacy from organisations like SWAP'ra and PiPA has on the industry. We're collecting data for the current season.  Please contact us for more information.

PIPA PARTNERSHIP

We’re now working in partnership with Parents and Carers in Performing Arts (PiPA) as their Advocacy and Campaign Partner for opera. PiPA was established in 2016 to promote best practice employment and support for parents and carers in the performing arts sector through data collection, research, lobbying and working collaboratively with companies across many performing disciplines.
