The Big Freelancer Report, Freelancers Make Theatre Work

On 23 March 2021 Freelancer Make Theatre Work published the findings of their recent research into the health and sustainability of the freelance workforce in the performing arts. This report was created by an independent group of performing arts freelancers, supported by Freelancers Make Theatre Work and funded by Arts Council England.

One year on from the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Big Freelancer Report maps the problems facing the freelance workforce and makes practical recommendations for change going forward.

You can view and download the full report in the downloads section at the bottom of this page.
