Not in Our House DC
Seeking to create a culture of safety, respect, and accountability in our theatres
Not In Our House DC (NIOH DC) is a volunteer group of multidisciplinary theatre practitioners who work in Maryland, DC, and Virginia. We strive to develop standards of safety and empower individuals and organizations to address the existing structures that allow for harassment and unsafe conditions in our theatres.
The Standards are a comprehensive guide to procedures and best practices, as well as a framework for how to handle complaints when these standards are breached. These preventative principles and guidelines can help your organization and can be used as a tool for empowerment as an individual theatre artist. Theatre organizations are invited to adopt The Standards publicly and to apply them for the good of the community to create a culture of safety, respect, and accountability.
