Culture + Work at Point Zero: 2 Days of Militant Self-Education, Conviviality and Strategising

Precarious Workers Brigade (PWB) invites you to a two-day assembly to take stock, self- educate, make new alliances, and plot what is to be done about the state of cultural labour at this critical moment.

Almost ten years ago, PWB was formed from the skin of the Carrot Workers Collective to examine and transform the conditions of unpaid and precarious labour for cultural workers.
Today we again feel the need to reflect, learn with other collectives and campaigns and decide how and in which form to deploy our energies in the years ahead. Because things have gotten worse.

How can we discuss cultural democracy in increasingly post-democratic conditions and rising fascism? In the context of ‘post-work’ and increasing automation, how do we organise and imagine different forms of mutuality, commoning, cooperation and basic income beyond the wage? How can we reclaim the right to cultural activities as common spaces of joy and pleasure against the imposed austerity and accelerated gentrification?

We are calling cultural workers, artists, cleaners, activists, educators, students, and all those who have a stake in these questions to join us. In these two days, we will hear from each other, we will share short provocations on core issues to prompt collective discussions, build common agendas and take action.

More details coming soon — watch this space!
