COMMON GROUND at the Traverse

COMMON GROUND at the Traverse

We are delighted to be working with COMMON, an arts organisation which exists to support the UK theatre industry in achieving greater socio-economic diversity, and help working-class artists build sustainable careers in theatre, to deliver their COMMON GROUND initiative at the Traverse Theatre.

COMMON GROUND is an inclusive, supportive discussion exclusively aimed at artists who confidently self-identify as working-class, living and/or regularly working in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.

This discussion will offer a platform for working-class artists to share the barriers to career progression that they face when working in Edinburgh's theatre landscape. It will also provide the chance for artists to contribute COMMON and the Traverse Theatre's discourse surrounding solutions and opportunities which could be developed to help artists overcome these barriers.

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 disabilities.

Please contact with any specific requirements, questions or access needs in advance of the event. / @COMMONTHR
