Due to the advice around Coronavirus, and following a consultation between COMMON, Lancaster Arts and The Dukes, we have made the decision to postpone the COMMON: GROUND event originally being held on Wed 25th March. We will reschedule this event for later in 2020, and hope those who had planned to join us will do so again once a new date has been confirmed.
Lancaster Arts and The Dukes are thrilled to be partnering with COMMON, the leading national arts organisation supporting the UK creative industries to achieve greater socio-economic diversity, to host an event from their COMMON: GROUND programme.
This is a supportive, solution-focused discussion for creatives who identify themselves as working-class, who work in theatre, and who are living and/or working across Lancashire. The session will offer a platform for these creatives to share the barriers to career development they encounter in the region with the cultural leaders of arts organisations across Lancashire.
It will also offer an opportunity for working-class creatives to suggest ways the cultural leaders of these arts organisations can provide more effective support to aid them in building sustainable careers in the theatre sector.
This event is wheelchair-accessible, baby and child-friendly, and inclusive of working-class creatives from intersectional backgrounds across race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, gender binaries, visible and non-visible disabilities or illness and neurodivergence.
If you have any specific access needs we can offer support towards, please email Charlotte to let us know.
A number of travel bursaries are available to working-class creatives who need support accessing this event due to transport costs. Please contact Charlotte if you would benefit from financial support with travel expenses, and we will connect you to the nearest partner organisation of this event who can discuss arrangements with you in advance.
COMMON are the leading national arts organisation supporting the UK creative industries to achieve greater intersectional, socio-economic diversity. We partner with arts organisations across the UK to develop practical and sustainable solutions to improve access to and engagement with their work for creatives and communities from working-class backgrounds.
