"In Kind" is a research project by visual artists Janie Nicoll and Ailie Rutherford, for Glasgow International 2018 mapping the hidden economies of the festival, charting the unseen and unaccounted for efforts that enable the festival to take place; including support in kind, unpaid labour, favours and volunteer hours.
In order to do this, we are asking all artists and cultural workers participating in GI2018 to consent to participation in our research, by emailing email@example.com
Once we have your consent we can begin the process of logging your unpaid hours and in kind contributions to GI2018. All data will be gathered anonymously. For more information and to add your details to the In Kind mailing list please go to inkindproject.wordpress.com/
We look forward to hearing from you and your participation in this project
Really pleased to be undertaking this exciting new project with Ailie Rutherford, which will feature in the "Across the City' strand of GI2018 (Glasgow international Festival of Visual Art). http://glasgowinternational.org
'In Kind' will map the hidden economies of the GI festival and the “below the water-line” economy of the arts. The project will chart the unseen and unaccounted for efforts that enable GI to take place, exploring the support in kind, unpaid labour, mutual support, favours, gifts and volunteer hours that go into making Glasgow International. 21 April until 7th May 2018: watch out for us at CCA and Platform Easterhouse among other venues to be confirmed. More info to follow....
Really good to get started on a new project for STUC and the Better Than Zero campaign, working with young people and exploring issues raised by them in relation to work and society in general. A lot of what we discussed was very topical in relation to exploitative working practices, and power relationships within the workplace. We are aiming to create a pop-up style event or exhibition or performance in March, as a result of these sessions. Next session will be at The Space, Gallowgate, Glasgow on 5-7pm, 29th September. RSVP to Susan Collins at STUC at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you plan to come along.
Setting up a blog here in order to try to engage more with all the various aspects of my practise... juggling project work, art work and wider concerns relating to art production and wondering how they intersect.
