Organizing Self-Employed Workers in the Creative Industries

Project Details


Funder: ESRC Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund
This ESRC Industrial Strategy Research Fund Early Career Secondment drew upon my prior research on collective responses to the challenges of self-employment among freelance creative communities to help Indycube, a co-working cooperative and trade union for independent workers and the self-employed, foster a relationship with SMart, the leading cooperative platform of the self-employed in Europe, and inform Indycube’s policy engagement work via responses to the Taylor Review and evidence provided to the Work and Pensions Select Committee hearing on the Universal Credit.
