FREE CASH PRESENTS: Welfare to (Art) Work is a series of investigations into the role of the benefits system in Britain's art, music and subcultural histories, by artists Ruth Angel Edwards and Adam Gallagher. From Thatcher's Enterprise Allowance Scheme to Tony Blair's New Deal for Musicians, the show looks at how welfare policy has affected the lived realities of 'cultural producers' in the UK, and considers what, if any, horizon is left for artists and musicians in today's punitive, broken benefits system.

Episodes 1,2, 3,4 and 5 were commissioned by Montez Press Radio.

Episode 3 was produced at Wysing Arts Centre as part of their 2020 residencies.
