    A national invitation to co-imagine alternative futures.
    This initiative will ignite a conversation about our future. A collaboration between the University of South Australia and the Tingari-Silverton Foundation, it will invite Australians to explore and co-imagine the best possible future. It will ask the question: as a continent, a nation, and a people, who will we be in 2050?

    The future is workless

    When: Saturday 22 October at 4PM

    Where: Open State Hub

    Speakers: Moira Deslandes, Tim Dunlop

    A world without work as we know it could be a good thing. The landscape of work is changing, from the new share economy to automated vehicles, 3D printing and advanced AI. What will we do when robots take our jobs? The era of full-time work is ending and we have to stop holding out the false promise that jobs will reappear. So what does our future in the brave new world of non-work look like?

    This session was originally scheduled in the program for 5.15pm on Saturday 22 October in the Heizel Room; rescheduled during the Festival.
