M*****classes is a free training programme that aims address the lack of women in creative design and production roles. Each set of M*****classes consists of workshops, talks with professionals and hands on experience.
Christine Hamilton’s report Where are the Women? identified that, in 2014/15 across Scottish publicly funded theatres, that the number of men in creative design and production roles vastly outnumbered women. Our M*****class series was created in response to this report and aims to change this gender imbalance.
Many M*****classes participants have gone on to gain work as a result of the programme.
