Dependent on Experience

Dependent On Experience (Tales for an Accelerated Workforce)
Thursday 15 June 2017
7:30-10pm @Evening Class – Aberfeldy St

Evening Class are looking for talented, versatile, brilliant, articulate, inventive and inquisitive individuals to share their working experiences 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.
