Research on the situation of workplace bullying in the cultural sector

Anne-Marie Quigg, author of Bullying in the Arts and The Handbook of Dealing with Workplace Bullying, and her co-author Piers Jackson are asking for feedback from people who have experienced workplace bullying in the cultural sector, how it has affected them and how, if at all, they managed to deal with it. To their knowledge there has been no further research on the subject in the sector since the publication of Anne-Marie's first book in 2011. It thus would be helpful to get an update on what may, or may not, have changed.

"Occasional occupations are attractive not so much for their material rewards as for the prestige and self-fulfillment they confer. They require a strong personal commitment, which can be subjectively experienced in terms of passion and selflessness. The choice of a career in the cultural sector provides a good example of this", claims the description of Culture as a Vocation. Sociology of career choices in cultural management“.
