Barriers to career development as a working-class artist in Portsmouth

New Theatre Royal Portsmouth are proud to partner with COMMON, an arts organisation which exists to support the UK theatre industry in achieving greater socio-economic diversity, to deliver an event from their COMMON: GROUND initiative.

This is an open, supportive discussion which will offer a platform for ‘off-stage creatives’ who self-identify as working-class in Portsmouth to share the barriers to career progression that they face when building careers in theatre in our region. It is also an opportunity to contribute suggestions of solutions we could develop to eradicate these barriers.
