Below, you can find the workshop’s plan for the winter. It includes 3 group meetings and 2 self-study assignments. Workshops are addressed to artists, freelancers, designers, educators, students, and people who find it hard to call themselves workers. The aim of each workshop is to give participants tools to self-organize and organize in solidarity with others.
Organizing for Creatives is addressed to the residents&friends of Hafnar.haus. Feel welcome to send the registration link (https://forms.gle/osJCWEkKv4CFoC2x9) to the people you care for.
Workshops are powered by the East of Moon, which means that the cost of production is covered, and workshops are free for participants.
