Presented by Cultural Workers Organize in partnership with the Canadian Intern Association and the CWA Canada Associate Member Program

Cultural Workers Organize is a research project that explores the hypothesis that flexworkers in the arts, communication, and cultural industries are protagonists of a recomposition of labour politics today. At the core of the study are emerging efforts of contract workers, interns, self-employed, freelancers, part-timers and other flexible labour forces—in some of contemporary capitalism’s most prized sectors—to confront precarity, or the financial and social insecurity exacerbated by unstable employment. 


The Canadian Intern Association advocates against the exploitation of interns and aims to improve the internship experience for both interns and employers.

 

The CWA Canada Associate Member Program is a community dedicated to connecting student, volunteer and precarious (intern, temporary, part-time) media workers to each other, and to the resources they need to realize their creative and career goals.
