Alexandrea Ravenelle: Hustle and Gig
Monday March 11: 7:30PM – 8:30PM

Choose your hours, choose your work, be your own boss, control your own income. Welcome to the sharing economy, a nebulous collection of online platforms and apps that promise to transcend capitalism. Supporters argue that the gig economy will reverse economic inequality, enhance worker rights, and bring entrepreneurship to the masses. But does it?
Join us in the second floor art department as Alexandrea shares her book!
