Actors Workshop Statement

CGA members strongly believe in a code of conduct by the workshop providers in order to protect the reputation and standing of Casting Directors in the actor community.

Many members of the CGA are happy to participate in organised workshops for the development of actors. We require that Workshop Producers abide by our guidelines as drawn up by the CGA and outlined in our letter of agreement. These guidelines were created to support an instructional environment taught by experienced professionals. Members should be contacted individually via the information available on this site.

The CGA is here to support Casting Directors and Associates. If you have any questions for the CGA committee please complete the above form. Please do not submit actor Showreels or CV details. Unfortunately we are unable to circulate such information.
