"A shitty job"

Team member Ingrid Galadriel has developed an interactive workshop for teenagers on the topic of professions, labor and stigma. What do we refer to as a shitty job and why? In the workshop, the teenagers learn about professions and the standards of society in the 18th century. Investigating today’s society they also look at professions in the modern world, how we tend to add personal qualities to whomever holds the job, what jobs give the highest and lowest social status. The purpose of the workshop is not necessarily to prevent teenagers from stigmatizing, but to help them realize that all professions are part of a machinery and that they are equally important.
The project was developed for and at the Sverresborg Trøndelag Folk Museum and went on tour with The Cultural Back Pack (DKS) fall 2015 and spring 2016. Martin Nielsen from Alibier AS helped as a developer and facilitator.
