Welcome to our resources on art, performance and cultural projects engaging with issues of economic justice and poverty across the world.

You can download our working bibliography of academic publications exploring theatre and poverty here – Working Bibliography. The  bibliography is in two parts, ‘Histories of Theatre and the Poor’ (p. 1 – 5) and ‘Theatre, poverty and economic justice’ (p. 6 – 15).

We’ve added some sources of information on economic inequality and poverty that we find useful, however, please note that their inclusion here does not indicate agreement with their content or ethos.
