COMMON: GROUND - CAREER DEVELOPMENT AS A WORKING-CLASS ARTIST IN PORTSMOUTH AND THE SOUTH-WEST
DELIVERED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH NEW THEATRE ROYAL PORTSMOUTH
THURSDAY 21ST MARCH 2019: 6PM - 8.30PM
NEW THEATRE ROYAL PORTSMOUTH
We are partnering with New Theatre Royal Portsmouth to deliver an event from our COMMON: GROUND initiative, exclusively aimed at ‘off-stage creatives’ working in theatre who self-identify as working-class.
This event will offer a platform for working-class artists to share the barriers to career development that they face when building careers in theatre in Portsmouth and the South-West. It will also provide an opportunity for artists to offer suggestions of practical solutions and ‘interventions’ which could be created to help overcome them, which will act as the foundation for COMMON to begin a practical collaboration with NTRP to eradicate socio-economic barriers in this region.
This event is specifically aimed at ‘off-stage creatives’ who self-identify as working-class living and working in the South-West, including theatre directors, producers, movement directors, stage management, costume supervisors, composers and lighting designers.
This event is wheelchair-accessible, baby/child friendly and inclusive of working-class artists from intersectional backgrounds across race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, gender binaries and disabilities.
