Dr Roberta  Comunian is involved alongside colleagues from the Faculty of Education of University of Bolzen (Dr Federica Vigano) and University of Dundee (Dr Lauren England) in the organisation of a Call for Papers and an online international Workshop (4-5 Nov, 2021) on the theme: Creative Work: Possible Futures after Covid-19.  

The Covid-19 pandemic has re-shaped the way we live and work. However, for some, like creative and cultural workers, it has exposed issues of precarity, heightened the need to rethink working practices and business models, and created an opportunity for structural intervention. While a range of research from policy and academia has presented immediate evidence of the impact of Covid-19, a year on from the first lock-down across many nations, we argue for the need to share and discuss current and recent work to map future directions and scenarios for creative and cultural work. In this workshop, we would like to present research that builds on data collected in the past 12 months, considering a range of challenges and changes that might have taken place and re-thinking practices and business models. 

The workshop aims to generate exchange and dialogue from which to develop a special issue dedicated to the topic to be submitted in 2022. 

The Call for Papers invites anyone with relevant research and data to submit an extended abstract for consideration by the 1st of July 2021.
