Event Details

Faster and smarter AI, robots and cyborgs are going to be the answer to all your workplace woes, but hold on, doesn’t that mean you’ll be out of a job? Consider how your time and labour might be valued in the future at WORKPLACE.

WORKPLACE is a coworking space for the creation of alternative work futures. Part-installation, part-performance and part-public forum held on Prototype Street, WORKPLACE invites you to imagine new visions of work in this age of increasing automation. With a nod to Melbourne’s historic role adopting the eight-hour work day and 40-hour work week in the mid-1800s, WORKPLACE asks what human work will look like in the years to come. Challenge your beliefs about the history and future of work, and discover a different reality at WORKPLACE.

Wheelchair accessible.

Dates: Monday 20 May to Sunday 26 May 2019 10am to 10pm

Carbon neutral contribution

Melbourne Knowledge Week is committed to reducing its impact on the environment and will be certified carbon neutral for 2019.

This means we will measure the festival’s carbon emissions and implement actions to reduce them. Then we will purchase offsets on your behalf to cover the remaining emissions and achieve carbon neutrality.

Your contribution will go towards a range of offset projects including a reforestation project in NSW and a project which enables Aboriginal communities to reduce emissions through improved land management practices in the Kimberley.

Take action on climate change, act now.
