Registration 1.30pm, conference 2.00-5.00pm

Speakers: Prof. Kate Oakley, Visiting Professor and Course Director, MA in Cultural Leadership, City University London, Dr. Anne-Marie Quigg, Director, Jackson Quigg Associates Ltd, Fiona O’Cleirigh, freelance journalist

Until relatively recently, conditions within cultural labour markets were of little interest to policymakers. They were assumed to offer "good work", and the only policy goal was to support their growth, and ensure we had a skilled workforce. But data on the unrepresentative nature of the cultural labour market and concerns about declining social mobility, have led to something of a change of mind.

This half-day conference explores some of the less desirable aspects of cultural work, as a way of thinking about the policy and leadership challenges that they present, and what may be done to improve working conditions and entry to the sector.

The programme will include three papers:

Prof. Kate Oakley, Visiting Professor and Course Director, MA in Cultural Leadership, City University London:

Cultural work; is it fair?

Dr. Anne-Marie Quigg, Director, Jackson Quigg Associates Ltd:

Bullying in the arts: breaching the psychological contract

Fiona O’Cleirigh, freelance journalist:

Paying their way:  interns and wage reversal in the media workplace

The presentations will be followed by a panel session, with the speakers and representatives from Arts Council England, the Theatrical Management Association and BECTU.

Attendance is free of charge.  To book your place please use the link above.
