Research on gender distribution in the Flemish performing arts sector

Four years ago Kaaitheater and the VTi, the institute for the performing arts, carried out a small-scale study: is the performing arts sector as feminine as it is generally assumed? Well, the results were disappointing! To give just one figure: of the 32 directors of civic theatres and arts centres only seven were women. Four of them worked in youth theatres. Together with the VTi and the Performing Arts Social Fund we have now carried out more thorough gender research, ranging from the 1992-93 season to the 2012-13 season. In addition, we have examined performing arts education.
