Cultural Workers on the Brink:
An extradisciplinary drift with Brian Holmes

Theorist Brian Holmes and content workers based in London will tell stories and share strategies while strolling to some of the city?s most significant sites of cultural production.
Our point of departure is Brian's assertion that:
..."cultural producers, today, are
humiliated by the conditions under which we work".
