Something for Nothing? with Jo Verrent

29 September 2022

Deadline: October 8, 2022

As part of Bounce Arts Festival, the University of the ATypical are holding a series of talks. ‘Something for Nothing?’ with Jo Verrent, looks to hold an open discussion on the difficulties faced by creatives, (especially disabled creatives).

‘Don’t expect something for nothing’, Jo looks at how creatives are often asked to give advice, guidance, support and more for free, whether they are part of an organisation or freelance.

Jo looks to discuss how this situation can be shifted to benefit disabled creatives.
