WORK is supported by Jerwood Arts and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Dryden Goodwin worked with QUAD, and his film explores the rhythms of a care worker’s day as he navigates the city with his clients.

Based with Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, in Northamptonshire, Jenny Holt worked with four young workers, in the context of a historically rural, farming community and its recent development as a site for internationally networked distribution hubs.

Adam Lewis-Jacob, working with Vivid Projects in Birmingham, took the Trade Union Resource Centre archive as his starting point for a film about collective activism.

Working with Junction Arts in Chesterfield, Esther Johnson’s film tells individual stories of the impact of economic changes brought from post-industrialisation in Bolsover.
