Support the Strikes Night

February 21, 2023 @ 18:00 - 22:00

Janine and others form the Poetry on the Picket Line crew feature in this evening of entertaining solidarity.


An evening of speakers & performances run by members of CCW UCU to support the Strikes!!!

UCU members & friends of the strike are taking action over falling pay, the gender and ethnic pay gap, precarious employment practices, and unsafe workloads.

University employers consistently fail to address these issues.

This event is held in support of the strikes across society, the largest wave we’ve seen in 30 years. We will hear from arts and culture workers and reflect on how we can organise as a sector, one that relies heavily on precarious labour.

We will hear from campaigners, artists and striking culture workers as well as live performances from…

… Shovel Dance Collective

… Mark Thomas

… Bones and the Aft

… Poetry on the picket line

… Will Bindley

… Jelly Cleaver

… Pause or Pay Organisers

… Kevin Biderman (Defend the Arts)

… Will Attenborough (Equity for a green new deal)

... Izzy Warren (UKSCN London Campaigner)

... And more


The event will be held alongside the exhibition, Baggage Claim, which is co-curated by a UCU member.

This event is open to all: students, teachers, striking workers and supporters alike.
