The lives of cultural workers are complex and contradictory; often combining work satisfaction, pleasure and autonomy with job insecurity, low pay, long hours, anxiety and inequality.

This roundtable aims to discuss the potentials and limits of worker co-operatives as an alternative way of organizing cultural work. It explores how worker co-operation might contribute to new collaborative forms of cultural production; at 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.
