~ Dialogues with Solidarity Conscious Knowledge Workers  ~ 
An event series produced by datejie cheko green
FIMS Asper Fellow in Media 2015

The series’ goal is to engage precarious cultural, media and knowledge producers about their work and lives. We’ll discuss what it’s like to hustle, stay solvent, healthy and safe in today’s labour market, while still being productive and nurturing our talents and dreams.

We will also probe the barriers and threats to our digitally-dependent work, including the implications of digital surveillance and other forms of policing on precarious knowledge workers and our communities.

Thank you to our series co-sponsors:

FIMS, FIMS Student Council, FIMS Digital Labour Group, Western University International Week, CHRW Radio 94.9 FM.
