The Studio, Crescent Arts Centre
13th March: 5.00pm – 7.00pm
A shift is happening in our ways of thinking about and doing ‘work’.
Increasingly people, especially young adults, are free-lancing, becoming self-employed, to ‘make a living’ – sometimes through choice, often by dint of circumstances. In the midst of their seeking and making good with opportunities, these increasingly numerous ‘working people’ face considerable challenges, for example, in maintaining sufficient monetarily valued work, in making provision for times of illness and unfitness for work, and in ‘laying up’ financial resource against their later, post-professional years.
This workshop will provide opportunity for participants to think together about ‘work’ in the round, and about the changing nature of remunerated work in particular. Colleagues from the Belgium-based SMart organisation will be playing leading roles in informing and inspiring the conversation. The session will be hosted by Voluntary Arts Ireland and facilitated by Michael Donnelly of Perspectivity.
