This event combines radical cabaret with a day of academic-artist-activist workshop discussions.

Programmed in Glasgow’s Kinning Park Complex, an autonomous, resident-led social centre, the event will bring together a transnational network of artist-activists and scholars to discuss strategies for analysing and resisting precarious labour in a time of austerity.

The Arts and Precarity Cabaret, January 22 — 7 pm till 11pm

The Arts and Precarity cabaret will feature five artists exploring and resisting public funding cuts, precarious work and labour inequalities through text, films, music and performance.

The Arts and Precarity Workshop, January 23 — 10 am till 6:00 pm

The workshop groups will discuss precarious work across many fields, from freelancers in the cultural sector to zero hours service and education workers, from undocumented agricultural labourers to interns and volunteers.
