The programme has been convened by a freelancer-led consortium, who have come together to build on existing advocacy, research and campaigning across culture.
In recognition that freelancers are not often remunerated for the time taken to attend sector events, the consortium has created 40 bursaries of £250 to enable more freelancers to engage.
They have sought to build a programme and a space that is as accessible as possible.
All sessions are free of charge and captioned.
All live events are recorded and available to access at times chosen by participants and will remain permanently available.
The programme is scheduled across nine weeks, in order to enable more people to integrate the extra labour within their work plans and commitments.
