No One Way: Industry Advice Series
Created in Summer 2020 during pandemic closure
We know that a career in the arts can still only seem a sustainable option for a certain kind of person. In summer 2020, when the world went online, we pulled together a group of writers, producers, directors, performers, and industry professionals to share their career journeys, in the hope of debunking some myths of what the stereotypical ‘arts professional’ looks like.
These No One Way recordings are informal discussions led by those working in the arts. In each hour long session the guest speaker will share their story, offer advice and resources, training and opportunities that helped them on their way, and respond to any questions of yours.
The first season of guests included Luke Barnes (Playwright: The Young Vic, Bush Theatre & Middle Child), Ellie Claughton (Freelancer Producer: Lung, Breach Theatre, Barrell Organ), Gitika Buttoo (Director: The Octagon Theatre, Leeds Playhouse, National Theatre & CAST), Kevin Jamieson (Head of Programme, HOME), Gordon Millar (CEO and Artistic Director, Unity), Jess Thom (Touretteshero, Performer and Deviser), Matthew Xia (Director), Melissa Johns (Performer) and Nina Hajiyianni (Artists Director, Action Transport Theatre).
