Safe Space Protocol

gbsurvivors.org hopes that the content shared here will spark ongoing discussion and debate about abuse, harassment and discrimination in the performing arts. It is not, however, the purpose of this website to host those debates.

The purpose of this website is to provide former and current students and instructors of George Brown Theatre School with a safe public forum to share their experiences.

No content that diminishes or degrades the lived experiences of former or current students will be published on this website.

Any contributor may request the modification or removal of their posting at any time.

Names of Alleged Perpetrators and Employees of George Brown College

In submitting your story by email, you are welcome to identify people by name. In the interest of maintaining continuity of service and avoiding legal challenges to this website, however, real names will be replaced with pseudonyms. Efforts will be made to apply a unique and consistent pseudonym to perpetrators identified across multiple stories.

Students and Professionals at Other Institutions

Your voice is important too. It has become clear that issues of abuse, harassment and discrimination are not confined to George Brown Theatre School. They appear to be very serious, entrenched and endemic problems throughout the performing arts. This website will be happy to host a page for community ally stories. Please consider submitting your story or message of support to:
