COMMON: GROUND

SESSION NOTES

 

Below you can find the summarised notes FROM SOME OF our previous common: ground events.

This includes summaries of the barriers working-class artists described facing when building careers in theatre, and their suggestions of solutions to help overcome them.

Our intention is for these notes to be utilised by theatres, arts organisations and theatre companies when looking to make their artistic programming, outreach and community engagement work, and artist development opportunities more accessible for working-class artists, audiences and communities.
