Reconciliation of professional, private and family life
In the live performance sector, there is still a lack of sufficient policy measures and instruments to respond to the needs to balance work and private life. The sector has specific work patterns, with sectoral features as: working in the evening or over the weekend, high mobility (touring), reluctance to take a break in one’s career,... These characteristics make balancing work and private and family life a real challenge in the live performance sector. Solutions may be addressed both at company and sectoral level, but also at Member State level, in particular concerning provisions of care-facilities.
