50 Days of Freelancing – July 1 to Aug 19
As the old “job for life” dies out, and more people trade the corporate world for independent, meaningful work, Britain’s freelance population is rising fast. Freelancers are playing the role of innovation drivers and entrepreneurs, motivated by the freedom to choose how they work and what they work on. But how can freelancers thrive in a world that is still set up for salaried employees? And what can be done to change that world to better support freelancers’ needs?
HUB Islington invites London’s freelancers to 50 Days of Freelancing, a 50 day programme championing this movement from July 1st to August 19th including free debates, events, clinics, free trial days on Wednesday at the HUB for freelancers, and so much more.
Event #1 – Tuesday, 9th July
Freelancers Unite! What rights are we fighting for?
Tuesday July 9, 6pm-8pm. Free.
Can freelancers have both freedom and security in their work? Whether you’re a lifelong “solopreneur” or a downsized office refugee, all freelancers face a common set of challenges. HUB Islington invites London’s freelancers for a participatory workshop to determine what we mean by “rights” for freelance workers, featuring guests Brendan Martin, from Public World and Rachel Hills, freelance journalist and lead of the Freelancers Unite! movement at Hub Islington.
