Incredible the things they see

Where we are in the world. Pilsen.

A place rich with a cultural resistance, walls of art adorn the streets gathered through the years, created by people who stay and those who get pushed to leave. Gentrification.

Benjamin is explaining to the young people at ATPT about Pilsen…

Where are all the working class artists?

Over the past 6 months I've been writing a report for the AHRC on what it means to be working class and work within the creative industries.

I've been up and down the Country interviewing people from young people, artists, activists, mps, creatives and educators. Asking them about their connection with art, who they thought art was for and finding out if anyone could become an artist regardless of social class. My mission to build a picture of how people are currently…
