STAGE DIRECTORS’ UK & COMMON

COMMON: GROUND - career progression as a working-class theatre director

DELIVERED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH STAGE DIRECTOR’S UK

TUESDAY 30th october, 7.30pm - 9.30pm
the dominion theatre

TICKETS: FREE

SDUK are proud to work in partnership with COMMON to address socio-economic inequality amongst opportunities and access for UK theatre directors, finding positive actions and interventions that will enable us to achieve greater class diversity.

This COMMON: GROUND event is exclusively aimed at stage directors who self-identify as working-class, and will offer a platform for directors to share the barriers to career progression that they face when building careers in theatre.

This research will then act as the foundation for COMMON and SDUK to begin developing positive actions and interventions, which will be shared with the wider theatre industry and help move towards eradicating the barriers faced by working-class directors across the sector.

The COMMON: GROUND event is free and open to both members and non-members of SDUK who self-identify as working-class, but it is essential that you book a place for the event.

Any members of SDUK who wish to attend but need help with travel expenses to do so can apply for the SDUK Bursary fund for Events. Please contact your Membership Engagement Officer, Jemma, for more details. Email: jemma@stagedirectorsuk.com

We will also be running a waiting list for this event, to be placed on it please email jemma@stagedirectorsuk.com
