Create NSW recognises the need to support working parents or carers in the screen industry and to build awareness about screen practitioners whose caring responsibilities may impact negatively on their role in the Screen Industry.
Create NSW has introduced the Screen Momentum Attachment Register, which sees any project that receives over $400,000 in funding expected to engage at least one attachment who identifies as a carer recently or is currently impacted by care responsibilities. Carers is defined to include childcare, caring for the elderly and self-care
To support industry to deliver this, Create NSW will maintain a Screen Momentum Attachment Register of practitioners who are currently or have recently been carers and are ready to work, with the aim of driving long-term change in the industry.
Project-based attachments that create on-the-job skills can be an integral part of career development.
Create NSW is committed to promoting diversity of opportunity in the screen industry as well as the diversity of screen stories. Alongside its commitment to gender equality and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representation, Create NSW supports the expansion of talent and stories from all genders, cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations.
Before submitting an expression of interest for inclusion on the register, please read the Guidelines.

How will the attachment be selected?
Create NSW will maintain an attachment register for practitioners who are interested in undertaking an attachment role. Once the production has identified their requirements, the Screen Industry Development team will review the register and prepare a shortlist of up to three names. This shortlist will be sent to the production house to review and interview before deciding on their preferred applicant.
What reporting is required after the attachment?
Once the attachment is completed, a acquittal report from both the production company and the attachment will be required. The acquittal report templates will be provided by Create NSW.
