The precarious position of workers and freelancers in the cultural and creative industries has been studied extensively, with research foregrounding low levels of job security and low income across the breadth of the creative sectors. Since Covid-19, these conditions have both been laid bare and aggravated. Much of the reserves have dried up – financially and psychologically –, with many makers and firms balancing on the verge of collapse. This research focuses on one solution for this issue: that of collective working and co-operatives.
