There are TWO strands to our work:



COMMON partner with theatres across the UK to find practical solutions to improve socio-economic diversity and inclusion within their organisations.

We work as advisors and collaborators with leading theatres to identify socio-economic barriers within their organisational practices and working methods.

We support theatres to create interventions and solutions which aim to enable working-class artists, audiences and communities have greater access and engagement with their work.

We create new programmes to support the skill
and career development of working-class artists.

These programmes aim to support working-class artists to overcome the structural, socio-economic inequalities which categorise the UK theatre industry.

Through this strand we aim to create equal opportunity and support working-class artists to build sustainable careers in theatre.
