Dependent On Experience (tales for an accelerated workforce)
Thu 15 June 2017, 19:30 – 22:00 BST
Evening Class are looking for talented, versatile, brilliant, articulate, inventive and inquisitive individuals to share their working experiences, both good and bad, for an exciting new up-coming event. We’re a small outfit with big ambitions looking to build our network, so you’ll get a real opportunity to express your ideas and thoughts on what it’s really like to work in the cultural capital. What were your expectations? Did this face up with the reality? We want your communication skills, both verbal and written, to form the basis of our peer-to-peer reflections.
Evening class will facilitate a group discussion reflecting on shared experiences of work.
OPEN CALL: We are looking for stories and experiences (good or bad) from a range of cultural institutions, studios, self-employment, freelancing, interning etc. These can either be presented in person at the event, or submitted beforehand to be read out anonymously by members of Evening Class. These stories will provide a departure point for a broad discussion focusing on the current labour climate of the creative industrial complex.
Please get in touch and submit your recent or current work experiences to firstname.lastname@example.org
