Co-operatives in the Cultural Industries Roundtable and Recording
Earlier this month CCI hosted a roundtable discussion on Co-operatives in the Cultural Industries. A recording of the discussion has been published in the open access journal TripleC and can be downloaded here
The roundtable discussed the potentials and limits of worker co-operatives as an alternative way of organizing cultural work. It explored how worker co-operation might contribute to new collaborative forms of cultural production; how they do, or might, strengthen a ‘cultural commons’; and the role cultural co-ops play in the wider context of movements for workers’ rights.
Speakers included industrial economist and author of Co-operation in the age of Google, Robin Murray; Rhiannon Colvin, founder of AltGen; Sion Whellens from Calverts and Tara Mulqueen from Birkbeck College School of Law.
Marisol Sandoval and Jo Littler chaired the event
