Run wash-up meetings & ongoing support

What you need to know


We are a creative industry and often take new knowledge, skills and ideas that have worked from one project to the next. But when it comes to working practices, things tend to stay the same because ‘they have always been a particular way’.

Taking the time to reflect on practices that have improved mental health and wellbeing on your production helps make sure this doesn’t happen and that real progress is made. And remember to take forward any lessons on the things that haven’t worked so well too.

Every project starts with a production meeting where there’s an opportunity to discuss how things should go and make sure people are on the same page. This should happen at the end of a project too.

Holding a wash-up meeting gives the whole team the opportunity to share their experiences, recognise what worked and reflect on processes that can be improved next time.
