Movement Director's Survey 2020

In a joint initiative, the MDA and Equity have undertaken the first ever survey of the field of movement direction in the UK.


Never has it been more critical for movement directors to be part of shaping the future landscape, as the industry reconstructs in the face of the global pandemic.

The survey will build a picture of the field, set the agenda for the MDA and help make the case for better working conditions and standards.

The findings are currently being analysed and will be shared in due course.

Thank you for taking part!
