We are pleased to present the first publication in BLOK’s newly launched bilingual book series, “Wild Growth” by Ana Kuzmanić and Luka Bekavac.

APPLAUSE DOESN’T PAY THE RENT: A YOUTH EDUCATION ON WORKERS’ RIGHTS IN CULTURE

Large_insta

 

Are you about to complete your academic studies or working in the arts and culture sector, and are wondering how much longer you will be offered only poorly paid gigs? Do you write, photograph, dance, or design for free, or to “gain experience” and can’t see the end of it? Have you had enough of playing music for a tepid beer and travel allowance? Do you often hear or think that you do art “out of love” and thus it is less important that you are poorly paid? Are you interested in how artists and cultural workers can organize themselves and win better working conditions?

APPLY FOR A FREE EDUCATION ON WORKERS’ RIGHTS INTENDED FOR YOUNG PEOPLE IN ARTS AND CULTURE!

Program is organised by BLOK and Croatian screenwriters and playwrights guild SPID during November in Zagreb. Applications are open until October 23. [...]
