Join us for a local WORK screening of four new films that explore contemporary working lives, by artists Dryden Goodwin, Jenny Holt, Esther Johnson and Adam Lewis-Jacob. A collaboration between five Midlands visual arts organisations: Animate Projects, QUAD, Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, Vivid Projects and Junction Arts.
WORK explores ideas and realities of what work means for the way we live today, engaging directly with the experiences of contemporary working lives.
Dryden Goodwin‘s film Alongside focus is on a care worker as he interacts with his ‘clients’ – young men with severe physical disabilities or autism.
Jenny Holt‘s film The Great Bear explores the rhythms of labour, rural landscapes and lives in Thrapston, Northamptonshire.
Esther Johnson‘s film a ROLE to PLAY explores the impact of different experiences of work and unemployment upon families across generations in post-industrial Bolsover.
Adam Lewis Jacob‘s film People Meeting in a Room explores contemporary workplace activism, workers’ rights, legislation and campaigning.
Please reserve your place here.
