If time is a resource, then who owns it? What is the difference between work and labour? Who decides what is time well spent or time wasted? Precarious worker Fiona Reilly invites you to consider such questions as she presents aspects of her current project The Department of Time Keepers. Looking at precarity, bureaucracy, autonomy and chrono-anxiety, this project is a continuing investigation into the determining factors of how we spend our time.
Admission is free and all are welcome. Don’t forget to bring your lunch!

New to the Workspace Social?
The Workspace Social is a weekly event developed as an alternative format for artists’ talks and networking. Every Thursday, a local or visiting artist is invited to join us for lunch: to discuss a recent project, to share new research or to propose an activity. Participants are welcome to bring along their lunch and to eat with the artist.
Note: Sometimes we take photos of our events; if you prefer not to be photographed, please let a member of staff know.
