COMMON are excited to be working in partnership with Fringe Central and The Pleasance Theatre to host a networking event during the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, exclusively for artists who confidently self-identify as working-class.

The networking event will offer a platform for working-class artists to find new collaborators, seek creatives to work on upcoming projects, share ideas for new work, and to simply have the opportunity to meet artists from similar backgrounds.

This COMMON event is exclusively aimed at artists who confidently self-identify as working class*.

This event is open to working-class artists across all disciplines and in all stages of their careers, including, but not limited to: movement directors, lighting designers, dramaturgs, theatre directors, producers, playwrights, set designers, costume designers, composers, sound designers and theatre-makers.

 

*Due to the complexities surrounding the measurement of socio-economic diversity in British theatre, we currently use the term 'working-class' to describe artists who confidently self-identify as being from working-class backgrounds, which includes those who have a family history of social, economic and financial disadvantage.

Please do not attend this event if you do not confidently self-identify as working-class. There will be opportunities to join the conversation and support the cause of working-class diversity in theatre as an ally at a later date.
