The Art Workers Event Series - Badge launch
March 25. 16.00-18.00

The Event Series kicks off with the launch of the Art Workers badge, a new project by Irish artist Fiona Reilly.

Many artists have to supplement the income they earn through their art with paid employment outside their field. The Art Workers Badge is designed to be worn by artists at their so-called "money jobs."

The launch will open with a talk by Fiona Reilly, followed by a critique of the project by artists Kelly Lloyd and Lise Skou, an audience Q&A, and dinner.
