Arts & Labor, a working group founded in conjunction with the New York General Assembly for #occupywallstreet, echoes the call for an Arts Assembly of artists, musicians, cultural workers, photographers, writers, dancers, filmmakers, interns, art handlers, designers, administrators, curators, assistants, and students.

We gather to discuss May Day, to build solidarity and coordination between OWS arts groups, and to plan outreach efforts to those not already involved in May Day actions.
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 of the 99%.
