Taking care

Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival believe it’s important to be challenged and excited by the arts.  We recognise that staging work that deals with certain issues can sometimes be challenging to those watching and those who make the work.  We encourage everyone to take care to look after yourselves. If you feel affected by anything you have seen during our live performances here are some contacts for advice, whether you are resident here or visiting the area.

Making performing arts happen is no easy feat, it is important to ensure all team members feel supported.  Dumfries & Galloway Arts Festival believe in and adhere to UK Theatre’s 10 Principles to encourage safer and even more supportive working practices in theatre.
