Being SMart about Freelancing — The changing nature of 'work'

Tuesday 13th March
The Studio, Crescent Arts Centre

A shift is happening in our ways of thinking about and doing 'work'. Increasingly people, especially young adults, are free-lancing, becoming self-employed, to 'make a living' — sometimes through choice, often by dint of circumstances. In the midst of their seeking and making good with opportunities, these increasingly numerous 'working people' face considerable challenges, for example, in maintaining sufficient monetarily valued work, in making provision for times of illness and unfitness for work, and in 'laying up' financial resource against their later, post-professional years.
This workshop will provide opportunity for participants to think together about 'work' in the round, and about the changing nature of remunerated work in particular. Colleagues from the Belgium-based SMart organisation will be playing leading roles in informing and inspiring the conversation.
The session will be hosted by Voluntary Arts Ireland and facilitated by Michael Donnelly of Perspectivity.
The event is a part of the Common Interchange of Ordinary Intelligence series of conversational gatherings hosted and facilitated by Voluntary Arts Ireland in partnership with the International Futures Forum, Perspectivity and others. Together we are exploring the prospects for cultural transformation related to economics, politics, ways of living and making a living.
‘We live in an era when the consequences and effects of dominant economic, social and political paradigms are pressing upon people, damaging democracy and fomenting feelings of frustration, helplessness and despair. It is now when creating together, wisely and hopefully, matters most.’
