Event description

Description

Urban Forum & Exhibition

Manchester is home to a vibrant and active artistic community. But can the city nurture and sustain a robust creative economy in the long term? And what are the implications for those who work within it? In this panel discussion, we will explore current and future issues of pay and compensation for the ‘creative precariat’, modes of support provided by local authorities and third sector organisations, and the role of further and higher education in developing skills and employability. Invited panellists include:

Abigail Gilmore, University of Manchester (chair)
David Gledhill, Rogue Studios
Kate Oakley, University of Leeds
John Owens, Instruct Studio
Jim Ralley, Hyper Island

This event also launches an exhibition of the winning images from the recent #cityfuturesmcr Instagram competition.The exhibition will be held at Twenty Twenty Two 20-27 May.

Followed by complimentary refreshments.
