Yesterday this blog post ‘On giving up not giving up’ was shared on my facebook feed by a friend. Zosia Jo articulates the struggles of being freelance in the arts and playing the ever saturating funding game, which she describes as The Capitalist Hustle. After 9 years working in the arts (and in dance in particular) I can relate to everything she writes here. Maybe I’ll lengthen this blog post one day by adding my own thoughts in too. I have touched on these ideas before in previous posts, but for now I just want to re read Zosia’s words as she has articulated exactly how I feel. I don’t necessarily feel ready to give up the game yet but it’s only a matter of time. And I am a dancer too.
