Working Class Artists: Space & Time
Mon 17 & Tue 18 Dec, 2-6pm 

Space and time for working class artists to network, create and debate. This event uses an open space format, which means that attendees set the agenda themselves - anyone can call a session, bringing the issues and topics they want to discuss to the floor.

Space & Time will be loosely facilitated by Heather Marshall who is a member of Working Class Artists Group, a collective of 33 working class artists living across the UK. WCA provide space for intersectional debate and calling out appropriating UK poverty in British Theatre.
