The qualitative and quantitative industry report will be led by WFT Chair Dr. Susan Liddy. The researchers are Dr Susan Liddy and Dr Fergal Rhatigan. The researchers acknowledge the support of Olwen Dawe and Dr Ciara Murphy. The research aims to uncover the extent and frequency of harmful behaviours, as well as workers’ experiences in the screen industries. The investigation is driven by the urgent need to address concerns highlighted by the “Speak Up: a call for change” report, which underscored the prevalence of such behaviours within the wider Irish arts sector.
