A not-to-be-missed chance for UoB students to come along and find out about the practicalities of working in the industry from Equity's Midlands Regional Organiser, Ian Bayes.
Equity is a very active trade union which represents those who work in the entertainment and arts industries. It represents not only actors but also dancers, singers, choreographers, backstage artists such as stage managers, designers and directors as well as walk-on and supporting artists and stunt performers.
This session is designed to be for those who want to know more about: how to become a freelancer, things to look out for in an agent, performance contracts, working conditions, etc., as well as what the union can offer you. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask any specific questions you may have too!
