We are a London-based group of current or ex interns, cultural workers and educators primarily from the creative and cultural sectors who regularly meet to think together around the conditions of free labour in contemporary societies.
We are undertake participatory action research around voluntary work, internships, job placements and compulsory free work in order to understand the impact they have on material conditions of existence, life expectations, subjectivity and the implications of this for education, life long training, exploitation, and class interest.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get involved. It would be great to hear from you.
Recently, the group has enlarged and broadened its focus to conditions of precarious work and life. Affiliated now with the Precarious Workers Brigade, we have open meetings on the second Thursday of every month in or around Bethnal Green.
