Part of Common People: the working class theatre festival. Browse the full programme here. Common People runs from Tue 17 – Sat 28 April.
In 2017, a Labour party report criticised working-class under-representation in the arts, and demanded the cultural sector work harder to fill the “class-shaped hole” in their audience and workforce.
Tonight, a panel of experts including the sociologist Sam Friedman (author of ‘The Class Ceiling: Why it pays to be privileged’) discuss the persistence – or resurgence – of class inequality in the arts, asks what can be done about it, and proposes some radical solutions.
Full line up to be annouced soon.
