What makes a job a good job?
What stands in the way of people in Cleveland finding and keeping good jobs?
On Thursday, May 30th, SPACES, Neighborhood Leadership Institute, Neighborhood Connections and Policy Matters Ohio invite Clevelanders to come weigh in on whether or not work in Cleveland is working for them, and to talk about ways we can improve job prospects in our region.
The forum is organized as part of PULL!, a community performance by internationally renowned artist William Pope.L, coming to Cleveland June 7 through 9. During PULL!, teams of Clevelanders will manually pull an 8 ton truck through the city from North Collinwood to Ohio City for over two days straight. Images collected from Clevelanders about what work means to them will be projected from the back of the truck as it is pulled through the city.

Friday, June 7th through Monday, June 10th
This June, in partnership with SPACES, artist William Pope.L will call on the people of Cleveland manually pull an 8-ton truck across the city for 72 hours.
Images gathered from Clevelanders about the work they do everyday will be projected onto the back of the truck, as it passes through neighborhoods from Collinwood, University Circle, Glenville, Hough, AsiaTown and downtown, to West Park, Clark-Fulton, Detroit Shoreway and Ohio City.
Pull! is a show of strength that can only happen if thousands of people across the city team together. It provides a moment for the diverse people of Cleveland to work together, eat together, pull together and talk together about one of the most powerful, meaningful forces in our lives – our jobs. All of his is performed through a community project made for and by the people of Cleveland.
