Work in the cultural sector is often precarious, exploitative and individualized – but what are the alternatives?
Watch our visit to Ceramics Studio Coop and see how worker cooperatives in the cultural industries can challenge the way we work and create. It’s the first in a series of videos introducing cultural co-ops and exploring the politics of co-ops in the cultural sector.
Follow us on Twitter @culturalcoops to find out when we launch cultural.coop, a website to collect resources about the co-operative model and to encourage collaboration and solidarity among cultural co-ops.
Let’s open up the conversation about the struggles faced by cultural workers and share our stories of resistance.
