Paid Not Played

We just spotted this post over at Silent City. Fancy joining an interns choir?


Fed up of working unpaid in the name of love? Then we invite you to join The Paid not Played Choir.

The Paid not Played Choir brings together cultural workers in a stand against the practice of free labour within the arts sector. As part of an ICA residency we welcome you to join the choir in creating, rehearsing and performing a piece of protest music to be staged in the ICA itself and venues and events across London (tbc).

The Paid not Played Choir will be running throughout November 2010. No singing skills required, just a desire to fight free labour! Singers should be available for three two-hour working sessions in November, held at the ICA, as well as performance dates. All dates to be confirmed.

Please begin by emailing: with all your complaints!! We will then send you more information…


Participation is free // Food will be served at each rehearsal // Everybody will receive a complimentary DVD of the performance // No singing skills required!!
