Class: The Elephant in the Room
The middle classes run the arts, they define value, they define excellence, they define what the next new thing is. Don’t they?
Then what are the possibilities for change in an industry that undervalues and distances itself from working class people, culturally, socially and economically?
Join Common Wealth and Cardiff University School of Social Sciences for a conversation, an exploration, an action. We will ask what defines us and our ‘place’ and explore how the making of art with, for and by people who often feel underrepresented might be possible.
Using theatre, we ask if arts can offer ways of both engaging working class communities and generating different ways of seeing, knowing and acting.
Or is class the elephant in the room?
