What are the conditions for living a long life with the arts within an industry that demand flexibility and resilience all the time? The “precariat” is a name for the group of artists, producers and freelancers who increasingly meet ‘uncertain’ and short-term employments in their work life today.
Do certain cultural workers have greater access to jobs and careers? Who faces invisible barriers and what are your own experiences from the industry? We focus on future work conditions, power structures and mobilization with a range of artists, cultural workers and industry professionals.
ABOUT SPRING GATHERINGS
How do categories of gender, ethnicity and mental conditions influence our possibilities to make and work with music and art?
Following present social, cultural and political changes in society we see the need to look into the possibilities for access, participation and representation at RMC and within the music industry: How do categories of gender, ethnicity and mental conditions affect our possibilities to make and work with music and art?
Therefore, RMC Event launches Spring Gatherings – on art, culture, identity, diversity and activism in 2021. Together with a wide range of artists, musicians, researchers and managers we will discuss representation and diversity in relation to artistic quality, change and equality.
In this context ‘representation’ is connected to how the school, the industry and society enable all bodies and expressions to feel welcome, at home, seen, and heard. Do you see your own reality, history and stories reflected in the world around you? Do you feel safe in your surrounding environment?
This event series is meant to keep an open approach to the term representation, and more importantly, what it looks, feels and sounds like to you?
We hope for nuanced debates that call for action, where we develop ourselves and our artistic project as individuals and a collective.
