Bright Lights Film Series: ‘The Gig Is Up’
December 15 @ 12:00 pm - December 16 @ 7:00 pm
The gig economy is worth over $5 trillion globally, and growing. And yet the stories of the workers behind this tech revolution have gone largely neglected. Who are the people in this shadow workforce? Lured by the promise of flexible work hours, independence, and control over time and money, workers from around the world have found a very different reality. The Gig is Up reveals how the magic of technology we are being sold might not be magic at all. Discussion with director Shannon Walsh and a second guest to follow.
Tickets are FREE and will be available starting at NOON on Wednesday and will be available for viewing until Thursday at 7:00 PM EST. Register for screening at ArtsEmerson. Link to participate in Zoom Webinar discussion on Thursday at 7:00 PM EST HERE.
