#MeToo Wales: Stories from the Creative Industries / #MeToo Cymru: Storïau gan Ddiwydiannau Creadigol

Dear Community

Following the outpouring of #MeToo stories from people who have experienced sexual harassment and abuses of power in the creative industries, Re-Live with support from Sherman Theatre will curate a bilingual event in which stories on this subject are heard for the first time in Wales.

The aim of the bilingual event is to provide an opportunity for these stories to be heard by an audience followed by a discussion on how we work together to bring about change in the creative industries in Wales.

The stories will have all names, sensitive information and identifying details redacted, ensuring confidentiality and removing legal risk. The stories will be read by actors to an audience in the Sherman Theatre, Cardiff.

To share your story anonymously with Re-Live:

If you work or study in the creative industries in Wales and have experienced sexual harassment or any abuse of power in your working life, you are invited to share your story. We welcome stories from anyone of any age, gender or sexuality.

We are aware this might be the first time you’ve considered sharing your story and we deeply appreciate the courage it takes.

We assure you that your story will be anonymous and treated with respect. We will not know your name, or your email or IP address. We will not be able to respond individually.

The stories will have all names, sensitive information and identifying details redacted, ensuring confidentiality and removing legal risk. The purpose of the event is not to ‘name and shame’ anyone, the aim is for the stories to be heard and to provide an opportunity for future change to be discussed.

Your story can be as long or as short as you want it to be. We cannot guarantee that every story will be shared live, but we do reassure you that every story will be read and will influence how this discussion moves forward in Wales. By submitting your story, you are giving your permission for your story to be read out at this event.

Re-Live has created an online form where you can anonymously share your story in English or Welsh here
