Last March we had our first COMM/ON and one thing was clear, there was lots to talk about.

Unfortunately a free event run by Freelancers for Freelancers has one problem — finding the time to actually organise it.
So here we are a year later, more people have thrown off the shackles of working for someone and are working for themselves, we’ve got an organising committee and we’re giving you COMM/ON 18.

Like before, the point of COMM/ON 18 is the need to network, the need to collaborate, the need to lobby and the need to organise. Whatever we do as freelancers — bakers, tailors, brewers, baristas, entertainers, etc. — we have a COMM/ON bond.
This time however we’re focusing on one aspect of being a freelancer that we believe needs urgent attention — Mental Health.

We’ll be joined by mental health professionals and researchers who’ll be looking at the mental health issues that affect freelancers in particular and what we can do about them. But as always the most important part of the event will be about supporting each other, sharing with each other and finding community with others working for themselves.

We’ve also been working with Bullitt to introduce a quarterly, themed mini-COMM/ON event, but more on that later…

COMM/ON 18 will again explore how we as freelancers can improve our working lives, celebrate the contribution that we make to society and build a creative space where we can network, learn and foster new ways of working together.

And afterwards, if you’re not busy, we’ll have a wee drink.

COMM/ON is free but PLEASE register.
Only registered users may comment.
Pass a quick registration or authorization.
