The purpose of this report is to complement current statistical data on freelance labour by providing a detailed, qualitative portrait of how freelancers negotiate precarious careers within specific regional contexts. It is based on a one-year research project (January 2018–19) funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) through the National Productivity Investment Fund. The research was conducted by a research fellow employed by the University of the West of England Bristol and undertaken in partnership with the Royal Television Society Bristol, Creative England, Creative Skillset, and Bristol Media.
