From Cardiff to Chicago with love

Where are all the working class artists?

Over the past 6 months I've been writing a report for the AHRC on what it means to be working class and work within the creative industries.I've been up and down the Country interviewing people from young people, artists, activists, mps, creatives and educators. Asking them about their connection with art, who they thought art was for and finding out if anyone could become an artist regardless of social class. My mission to build a picture of how people are currently feeling in the UK.This all…See More

Hi Rhiannon

Heard great things about your show in Edinburgh. I'm really sorry I didn't manage to catch it myself.

Are you about in Cardiff - would be good to grab a coffee and have a catch up.

Cheers

Hi Rhiannon, 

Welcome to the Community! It's great to see you here. 

Have a look around and get stuck in. A good place to start is by joining a group. I recommend checking out the Creatives Group (which is looked after by Matt Ball, Creative Associate) or the Producers Group (which is looked after by Lucy Davies, Executive Producer). 

You can also update the community, or start a discussion, in a blog post, and see what's on or add your own events in the What's On section

As usual it's best to just dive in, but if you have any questions do let me know!

Jen
