For most of us, making a go of it in the ‘for the love of it’ industries will come at a price.

In this session, our panellists discuss the costs of pursuing our creative and intellectual passions. How do you manage (emotionally and economically) an unpredictable freelance life? What are the impacts of precarious employment and gig economies on our lives? How can we better advocate for the value creative labour? And should we do away with the myth of working ‘for the love of it’?

Ben Eltham (freelance journalist and Lecturer in Media and Communications at Monash University); Izzy Roberts-Orr (Artistic Director and Co-CEO of the Emerging Writers Festival); Miya Tokumitsu (author and Lecturer in Art History at University of Melbourne); Chaired by Justin O’Connor (Professor of Communications and Cultural Economy at Monash University)
