5 October - 18 December 1983

COUCH 22 specifically explored the connection of a person’s identity with their status in the workforce and the nature of the word ‘unemployed’. One can be ’employed’ in many tasks and not receive any remuneration… The stigma of ‘being unemployed’ is one which people from the middle class are much less prepared to cope with.

COUCH 22 sought to give local young people a voice through drama and filmmaking workshops.
