We're organising a summer programme of learning and action for equitable conditions in culture with a freelancer-led coalition, including Freelancers Make Theatre WorkInc ArtsMAX Musician and Artist Exchangepeople make it workSomething To Aim ForWhat Next?

It’s a nine week programme (16/5 - 15/7/22) of online resources, workshops, panels and self organising spaces for independents, organisations, unions, policy makers and funders. Find the full programme on freelancefutures.org

Freelance work is often pressured, precarious and undervalued. It is also often undertaken by people who experience racialisation, ableism, lower socio-economic status, insecure legal status, and who have caring responsibilities. Read more about why we are organising.

Week of action

As members of the Solidarity Knows No Borders community we are calling for a Week of Action to #EndtheHostileEnvironment this 13-19 June.

If you are a culture worker or art organisation who wants to get involved, sign up for the online rally on 25 May. Upcoming actions will be shared with everyone registered and on Migrants Organise socials.

Paperwork

Migrants In Culture is hosting riso printing sessions for migrant culture workers and migrant organisers: Experiment with design, storytelling, comms and art processes as part of your organising work.

We will share skills, play despite hostile environments and meet other people who are imagining no borders futures.

Sign up for one or all four of our pilot sessions, every last Wednesday of the month (30 March, 27th April, 25th May, 29th June 2022) from 4-8pm at Rabbits Road Press, a community press set up by OOMK.

Zoom meeting (registration required)

We are excited to be joining forces with the comrades at the Designers and Cultural Workers strand of the United Voices of the World, a member-led, anti-racist, direct-action campaigning trade union supporting vulnerable, precarious, low-paid workers in the UK for a Q&A session on migrant culture work in the UK. 

The session takes place on 3 November 2021 from 7- 8:30pm, and is specifically aimed at migrant cultural workers who want to find out more about their rights. The event will be a Q&A and we ask that those joining submit questions in advance, to allow for preparation time. 

This is a group event, and we ask you to consider this in submitting your questions. 

If you are interested, there will be a UVW-DCW union induction for new and prospective members between 6:30-6:55pm.
