Share your lived experience
If you are an ACTRA member who has encountered inequitable hair or makeup services on set, please complete and submit the below form. By submitting this form, you are contributing to a database of lived experiences that ACTRA National is compiling to assist in driving long-term change in this area.
We thank you in advance for the emotional labour involved in sharing your stories with us, and assure you that anything you choose to share will be redacted and anonymized when sharing further, unless you explicitly indicate otherwise. Your submission – including your name – will be held in strict confidence unless you authorize us to release this information.
If you are submitting regarding a set that you are currently on, please contact your local ACTRA Branch Representative so it can be addressed appropriately with the production.
Please note that even if you don’t wish to escalate your concern to the production, learning about your experiences will allow ACTRA to understand the patterns of discriminatory behavior so that we can push for change.
Please be sure to fill-in your name and contact information so we can follow up with you in the future. Your identity will be held in strict confidence, and the form you submit will be sent directly to the Director of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging, Jenn Paul.
