We went yesterday to the D&D event ‘What can we all do about underrepresentation of working class actors in the arts?’ at Triton Square, London.
There were a only one group where all the conversations happened practically the whole evening.
We talked a lot about how working class actors feel discriminated against in castings – is it ‘casting’ a good word? How their education limit their exposure to the arts, how they struggle financially to support themselves in drama training and so on. Many ideas came out to help resolving all the issues.
Ben observed the power of the collective represented by the one only group.
I made 4 dolls which are now filled by the collective enthusiasm and courage to change what needs changing.
Thanks Ben and Anabel for holding the space for all of us.
