The Work of Hope in Creative Industries in Ghana

Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication


Creative work is filled with uncertainty. Creatives have no way of knowing if their films will be watched, their songs downloaded, or their pictures liked. Instead they have to send their artworks out into the world with the hope they will find an audience.
Adding to this artistic uncertainty - which has arguably always been a condition of artistic production - is the job uncertainty creatives face. Creative work is frequently defined by unstable and precarious conditions including insecure contracts and low pay, and a range of affective conditions that go along with this including anxiety and burnout.
