Class and Class Dynamics – an Introduction for Students
The concept of class in the UK is a complex and difficult thing to define. Join us for this session as we explore the elements that make up class identity in today’s society, what this means for those pursuing a career in the arts, and the impact it has on the art we consume and our views on it. We’ll then consider how we can drive positive change when it comes to class dynamics, prejudice and barriers to participation in the arts.
About the Course
This session explores the elements that make up class identity in today’s society. We unpack class terminology and different definitions, then hone in on what this means for the performing arts in particular. We discuss class within the arts, including possible barriers to participation for those pursuing a career in it, and the impact prejudices can have on the choices we make around the art we consume.
The session concludes by considering what we can individually and collectively do to drive positive change when it comes to class dynamics, prejudice and barriers to participation in the arts.
Participate. Training created specifically for students of performing arts colleges and conservatoires, and their teachers.
