A virtual tour of the online exhibition THIS IS NOT A SHOW, showcasing the work of over 50 working class artists and creatives from the Working Class Creatives Database at Pineapple Black Arts, with a brief look at my work included in the show. ‘THIS IS NOT A SHOW, IT IS A STATEMENT OF INTENT.’
The Working Class Creatives Database is a platform highlighting the work of people who are working class, giving a supporting structure to people that are involved in the arts. As of 2020, only 16% of the workforce in creative industries identify as being from working-class backgrounds. By creating a platform for working-class creatives this begins to address these issues within the sector through creating a voice for those that are otherwise outsiders. Special thanks to @pineappleblackarts for giving us a virtual space and @highbrowart for the poster design.
