In January 2018 Castlefield Gallery, MCDC and Redeye, the Photography Network are partnering to put on Don’t Give Up The Day Job, a workshop exploring how artists, makers and photographers can ensure that their day job feeds their practice both creatively and practically. Ahead of the event, this research will give us a clearer understanding of ways people support a creative practice, and identify issues that might need further research.

We would love to hear from you if you have a creative practice which you support with any other employment, earned income or benefits, or if you simply do other work for variety or for creative inspiration.

Your responses will be completely anonymous unless you choose to leave an email address for further information.

We would like to use your responses in an information pack that will be published before and during the event.
