14th March: 2.00pm – 5.00pm
This is a free event run by freelancers for freelancers.
Now that more people have thrown off the shackles of working for someone and are working for themselves, there 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.
At this event 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.
COMM/ON will 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. COMM/ON is free but please register.
