Meet Sue Parrish, Artistic Director, Sphinx Theatre Company

at a University Women in the Arts event on Saturday 4 November at 11:00am-12:00pm at the Hampstead Theatre Studio.  Tickets are free and the event is open to any female arts student or woman wanting to work in the arts.  Sue will offer advice to women wanting to work in the arts and discuss the future of a diverse cultural landscape.

The one off University Women in the Arts scheme was set up to address why more women study the arts but less women work in the arts, particularly in artistic and leadership roles. Last year’s UCAS figures showed 63% of arts students in the UK were female, but Tonic Theatre, British Theatre Consortium and Freeland Foundation figures have shown only around 30% of female playwrights, directors and artists are female.

Book your free ticket.
