Precarious Festival

SLIDERprecarious

Presented by Fleshy Thud in Partnership with Public Energy

Precarious workers are those who fill permanent job needs but are denied permanent employee rights. Why is so much creative labour precarious? What are the consequences of increasing precariousness for work of all kinds across the board? Precarious: Peterborough ArtsWORK Festival approaches these questions through creativity and dialogue. Theatre, literature, dance, visual art, panel discussions, installation performances, music, and that human thing: talk. Come be part of the conversation!

Are you an artist in Nogojiwanong-Peterborough? STAND UP AND BE COUNTED. Fill out the first-ever survey of the region's artists! Created in partnership with Electric City Culture Council (EC3), Precarious Festival and Trent Community Research Centre, we need to hear from our emerging to established artists. Fill out the survey here.
