Mutiny: Work on Trial

Jun 10, 2011

Mutiny is back. This time hosted by former Sunday Times journalist and author of A Year on The Sauce Brendan Montague and featuring Green politician Sian Berry. They are joined by activist Anne-Marie O-Reilly from Boycott Workfare and London Coalition Against Poverty, trade union representatives and a host of other special guests.

Work on Trial is a carnivalesque evening of live entertainment and discussion providing a whistle-stop tour of contemporary political issues at work. The night begins with speed debating, followed by three interactive debating sessions interspersed with performance poetry, theatre, readings, and live music. Set in the East-End’s avant-garde Resistance Gallery against a backdrop of topical art displays, Mutiny’s Work on Trial promises to be a political event like no other.

So how do we win the fight against racism, sexism and anti-immigration attitudes in the workplace? Must our experience of work be one of exploitation and frustration? Is work the moral issue it’s often made out to be, and if so what does this imply about those unable to participate? Can we imagine a better system for creating value and providing life’s essentials? Could trade unions really be the driving force behind implementing a more utopian vision of work? What would *you* do, given a genuine choice as to how much to work and what on?

‘Work on Trial’ begins at 6pm on Monday 4th July at the Resistance Gallery, 265 Poyser Street, Bethnal Green, London E2 9RF.
