Career Development as a Working-Class Artist in the South-West


    Delivered by COMMON in partnership with Nuffield Southampton Theatres and Wiltshire Creative

    NST City Rehearsal Room

    Saturday 9th March 4.30pm - 7.30pm

    Nuffield Southampton Theatres and Wiltshire Creative 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 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.


    COMMON is a nationwide arts organisation which exists to support the UK theatre industry in achieving greater socio-economic diversity, and to make theatre more accessible to the working-class; whether they be artists, audiences or communities.



    Tickets: Free

    Please Note: Places are limited and must be booked in advance.

    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 contact the Nuffield Southampton Theatres Box Office on 023 8067 1771 in advance of the discussion if you have any specific requirements, questions or access needs.
