This public seminar explores the future of work in our society, particularly in more socio-economically disadvantaged communities. A diverse group of contributors will explore issues under 2 headings – Modes of Production and Modes of Exchange. This event is free but please register here https://www.eventbrite.ie/e/after-the-futureof-work-tickets-36909723978.

The seminar on the 25th of August from 10.00 – 3p.m. at Robert Emmet CDP offices on Usher Street.  It is a key element of a wider exhibition “AFTER THE FUTURE…”, which seeks to create a public discussion around the future of work and new modes of exchange emerging within this shift. This is also an opportunity for the Robert Emmet CDP to reflect on an increasing employment gap emerging in the current economy, and its implication for future generations.
