Making Change through Unionisation

Do you feel unrepresented? Do you ever feel that no-one hears your voice? Are you in need of a support structure? In this discussion, facilitated by one of the founding members of Artists Union England, Katriona Beales, we will explore:

– underlying principles of unionisation
– do artists need to unionise?
– what are the benefits and what are the challenges
– solidarity – can it work in the arts?
– and more!

This discussion session runs in parallel to a presentation by members of The United Voices of the World Union’s Design and Creative Workers Branch – be sure to the watch the video before joining the discussion to get the most out of the experience.The presentation by UVW-DCW can be accessed by clicking HERE
