// WORKAROUND Day 1: Freitagsfrühstück — Beyond the freelance cliché
18. October 2013 @ 09:00 - 12:00€5
WORKAROUND Day 1 is dedicated to the multitude of freelance structures in the Brunnenviertel microcosm
October’s Freitagsfrühstück kicks off the WORKAROUND series with a workshop and presentation session. Hear from five inspiring women from the Brunnenviertel who have helped establish freelance work structures in northern Brunnenstrasse and who will provide us with fresh insight on freelance culture beyond the typical clichés of the flexible, creative and young media worker. There is a rich microcosm of freelancers in SUPERMARKT’s neighbourhood, with people of many different nationalities, age groups and professions. Let’s see what we can learn from each other!
Programme: Breakfast buffet and the workshop start at 9am, then presentations will be given from 10am—11:30pm, with time afterwards for discussions, Q&As and breakout groups.
9—10am: Life as a Freelancer // Workshop with host Nina Buschle [SOMEWHERE]
Join us if you lead the freelance life here in Berlin – as a designer, developer, writer, producer, marketer or other. We’ll exchange experiences about the challenges of negotiation such as how to handle pesky clients, how to keep track of your work load, and how to handle working on your own.
Information on SOMEWHERE: SOMEWHERE loves helping people share exciting insights of their work and practices. But there’s nothing like meeting and connecting people in real life, which is why they’ve introduced Somewhere Conversations, a new conversational workshop format bringing together passionate people around common topics of interest to exchange insights on practices, processes, techniques, methods and tools. It’s about learning from peers, getting inspiration and meeting like-minded people.
