Animate Projects is pleased to announce the online launch of WORK, on International Workers’ Day: four new artists’ films that explore contemporary working lives in the middle of England.

The films will be live on the WORK website from 9am on Friday, 1 May 2020.

Join us for a Zoom Q&A with the artists on 1 May at 7pm. Please register in advance via the booking link.

Made in Derby, Thrapston, Birmingham and Bolsover, the WORK films consider: the rhythms of a care worker’s day; traditional and new rural working lives – farming, forestry, and international logistics; Birmingham’s Trade Union Resource Centre film archive and collective activism; untold stories of the impact on individual lives of post-industrial economic change.

Developed and produced over two years, WORK is a collaboration between: Animate Projects; QUAD, Derby; Fermynwoods Contemporary Art, Thrapston, Northamptonshire; Vivid Projects, Birmingham; and Junction Arts, Chesterfield.

WORK is supported by Jerwood Arts and using public funding by Arts Council England.
