Our much-loved tradition of deliciously nourishing Supper Club events continues over two nights for the Festival of Live Art. Curators Asha Bee Abraham and Dan Koop bring together artists, audiences and experts to discuss the economic and social themes arising throughout the Festival of Live Art program.

We’ll provide you with a scrumptious dinner and feed your mind as well, over two distinct evenings of discussion on the themes ‘soft money’ and ‘hard labour’.

In Hard Labour we’ll talk manual labour, industry (does this include the ‘creative industries’?), the production line, wealth creation and ownership.

Ever done an unpaid gig ‘for exposure’? Cared for your family without pay? Wondered where the boundary of the neoliberal market economy lies? These two events are for you!
