Artist Wellbeing Policy

China Plate are committed to enabling and facilitating professional, ethical and productive working environments for artists that stimulate creative freedom and risk taking whilst safeguarding physical / mental health and wellbeing. Alongside Artist Wellbeing Practitioner Lou Platt, China Plate have been researching how to formalise and embed approaches to artist wellbeing across all of our productions. This has resulted in our Artist Wellbeing Policy.

The policy and list of resources aims to provide practical guidelines for safeguarding artist, creative team and employee wellbeing and mental health when working on productions. It is intended to allow for relaxed, robust and open dialogue to happen around wellbeing and care. It will be implemented and revisited throughout the entire creative process, from project inception to touring, in conjunction with the specific needs of the production and creative team.

This policy is created for internal use (all staff, artists, creatives working under auspices of China Plate projects / productions) and is also intended to be an open resource in order to promote these values in the wider sector.
