Common: Ground - Career Progression as a Working-Class Artist


Common: Ground - Career Progression as a Working-Class Artist

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’ working in theatre who self-identify as working-class, enabling them 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.
