Arts & Labor is a working group founded in conjunction with the New York General Assembly for #occupywallstreet. We are artists and interns, writers and educators, art handlers and designers, administrators, curators, assistants, and students. We are all art workers and members of the 99%.
Arts & Labor is dedicated to exposing and rectifying economic inequalities and exploitative working conditions in our fields through direct action and educational initiatives. By forging coalitions, fighting for fair labor practices, and reimagining the structures and institutions that frame our work, Arts & Labor aims to achieve parity for every member ofthe 99%
Arts & Labor meets weekly at 7pm on Tuesdays on the first 3 weeks of the month and on Wednesdays on the last week of the month. We meet at various POPS spaces around the city. Check our facebook page for the latest meeting space. Meeting locations are generally posted Monday.
