Bristol Old Vic, Theatre Bristol, Tobacco Factory Theatres and Travelling Light are partnering with COMMON to deliver an event from their COMMON: GROUND initiative.
COMMON: GROUND is a series of supportive discussions which offer a platform to ‘off-stage creatives’ who self-identify as working-class to share the barriers to career development they face when building careers in theatre in their region.
This research then acts as the foundation for COMMON to begin a practical collaboration with the host organisations to dismantle barriers faced by working-class artists in this region.
This event is specifically aimed at working-class, ‘off-stage creatives’ living and working in Bristol and surrounding areas of the South-West. This includes (but is not limited to) playwrights, theatre directors, producers, movement directors, stage managers, costume supervisors, composers, lighting designers and set and costume 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 visible and non-visible disabilities or illness. Please call 0117 987 7877 or email in advance if you have any specific requirements, questions or access needs.
Delivered by COMMON in partnership with Bristol Old Vic, Theatre Bristol, Tobacco Factory Theatres and Travelling Light Theatre Company.
