About

This is the first in the series of terms & conditions events, which aims to broadly open up and map different forms of precarious labour, with a particular focus on precarity of migrant labour. By asking 'who are the migrant workers today?' the session does not aim to provide a summative list, but to provoke, evoke and create space for collaborative mapping of the ever shifting and deteriorating terms and conditions, often aided by increasingly prohibitive immigration laws, or a lack of legislation such as in the informal economies of cultural sector, enabling exploitative practices for a cross-section of workers. Short presentations by Dr Faiza Shaheen, Professor Kevin Ward, Jose Luis Sanchez from the Latin American Workers Association, and Carrot Workers collective/Precarious Workers Brigade will be followed by an open round table discussion. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- terms & conditions is a project comprising of a series of events devised by Iniva in collaboration with artist Margareta Kern. The events, ranging from talks and discussions to workshops and walking tours, explore the impact of neoliberal capitalism on migration and labour with a focus on the social and economic injustices. Inspired by Iniva's three year project At the Intersection: Art & Economies. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Book your place Book online or contact bookings@rivingtonplace.org / 020 7749 1240
