Changing the cultural narrartive through the stories we tell.
Persistent and Nasty is a Scotland based podcast series and creative activism initiative for women and other marginalised voices in the stage and screen industries. We are Scotland's first feminist podcast, host script reading events and run monthly coffee mornings at Glasgow's Tron Theatre.
Our goal is to create a project that is fun, safe and supportive, but is also an act of protest. Find out more here.

Harassment in the Performing Arts.
Guides for Freelancers and Organisations.
Persistent and Nasty are part of the Harassment in the Performing Arts Working Group, a short-term, independent Working Group convened by the Federation of Scottish Theatre (FST). Many individuals took part in focus groups to inform thecontent of the guide. It is underpinned by what they told us, by other research and current legal advice. Everyone who contributed to its development is an experienced professional freelance worker or employee in the performing arts, coming from a range of different backgrounds. Our shared vision is to end sexual harassment in the industry. Find out more here.
"Persistent and Nasty who have been key in re-shaping our understanding of creating safer working environments within the sector. They have continued to challenge dominant narratives and I have seen them tackle the important issues whilst displaying incredible leadership during difficult times. They are at the forefront of driving inclusivity in Scottish theatre and bringing people together; within the current landscape it’s particularly vital that companies like Persistent and Nasty exist".
