A Good Night Out reading group: Community DIY centres and socialist culture

All over the UK, DIY community spaces play a vital role in sustaining working class infrastructure - from food provisions and community theatre, to accessing legal aid and music rehearsal rooms. As part of our radical vision for a socialist economy, we need to fight to preserve these spaces, but also forge a collective understanding of what we mean by a thriving and egalitarian socialist culture. To explore this further, TWT is collaborating with ‘A Good Night Out’ - a radical reading group set up by theatre workers, which is aimed at raising consciousness around the struggle for a more egalitarian arts and culture sector. Before the session, you will be sent some short, accessible readings which we will discuss collectively with guest speakers.
