The Complaining Body in Preston

On 3 November, 5.30-7pm, Manual Labours, In Certain Places and iROWE (Institute into Research for Organisations, Work and Employment) are hosting a special event discussing the processes of complaining: from making to managing to mellowing – this event focuses on new research into workplace complaining.

The event features presentations from:

Manual Labours – a practice based research project, who will discuss our inability to complain with Sweta Rajan-Rankin, lecturer in Social Policy at Brunel University, London.

iROWE’s Gemma Wibberley shares her recent research into workplace mediation and the participants’ experience.

Choreographer Hamish MacPherson presents ideas stemming from a series of workshops with a London based complaints team.

Preston-based artist Steph Fletcher connects work based complaints to the freelance, flexible structures of precarious work.

Following the presentations there will be open discussion, and the opportunity to share your own experience of workplace complaints.
