Traveller Communities - Step Beyond the Stereotype
Young Vic Theatre
66 The Cut
In close collaboration with Young Vic Taking Part, Equity is delighted to be hosting an evening panel discussion to focus on good practice in the representation and portrayal of Gypsy, Roma & Traveller people and communities.
Gypsies Roma and Traveller people and communities have become misunderstood and feared in part as a result of media portrayal reflective of deep-rooted stereotypes and prejudice.
As part of the Young Vic Taking Part initiative to develop the writing for performance skills and experience of young Travellers, this event will provide a wide range of perspective for writers, directors and producers on developing their practice and approach to featuring GRT lives as part of their work.
Alessandra Davidson (Assistant Director, Young Vic Taking Part Traveller project)

Isaac Blake (Romani Cultural Arts Company)
Suzanna King (Friends, Families and Travellers. Author of Crystal's Vardo)
Doors open for drinks at 6.45pm
Panel discussion starts at 7.30pm
