Cancelled & postponed - Your Perspective: freelancing in the cultural sector

Your Perspective NGO

CANCELLED & POSTPONED: due to COVID-19 and the latest updates Thursday (12/03) afternoon, regarding national health guidelines, we need to take into account the general health and safety of all participants. A new date will be set and communicated to you after 1 April 2020. Thank you for understanding.


What is it like to work for different employers and organisations and being your own boss at the same time? What inspires in working with curators, artists, performers, artistic leaders and festival producers? Would a more dynamic environment and work schedule suit you better than working in an office for 40 hours a week? 

The upcoming Your Perspective is all about freelancing in the cultural field. Together with alumni in the Humanities we will discuss questions like: how do you present yourself as a ‘brand’ to get the most interesting or best-paid projects? What is it like to need funds to realise your own ideas and projects? In other words… how can you make a living of freelancing in the cultural field?

We hope to see you on 16 March!
