Artists as Workers: Art, Labour and Activism

April 3 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

LCB Depot, 31 Rutland Street, Leicester LE1 1RE

With a presentation by Angela Kennedy (Artists’ Union England), a book launch with editors of artWORK Alberto Cossu (University of Leicester), Jessica Holtaway (Solent University) and Paula Serafini (University of Leicester), and Daniel Mutibwa (University of Nottingham).

What are the challenges faced by artists in the workplace? How can artists organise to stand against unfair practices and generate other ways of working and of valuing artistic work? And can collective artistic practice create new ways of being in the world? Join us for a discussion on art and work followed by the launch of the paperback edition of the book artWORK: Art, Labour and Activism (Rowman & Littlefield International).

This is a free event and everyone is welcome.
