This is part of a series of employment focused sessions have been planned as part of the Uncertain Futures project in partnership with MCC Work and Skills to provide women over 50 years old from across Manchester with support while in work or when looking for work. The sessions run from October 2021 to May 2022 and will be held either online or at the Gallery.
Uncertain Futures is a participatory artwork that seeks to highlight issues around paid and unpaid work for women over 50, focusing on gender, age, race, disability and class.
The project brings to the fore one of the most invisible contributors to the paid and unpaid workforce in the UK. It highlights the inequalities and discrimination women over 50 face regarding access to work, within work and when leaving work in relation to gender, age, race, disability, class and the impact of Covid19.
