Event description

Description

A Public Seminar On the Future Of Work.

This is a public seminar exploring the future of work in our society particularly in more socio-economically

disadvantaged communities.

After the future is an exhibition of work that has been developed by artist Glenn Loughran in collaboration with the Robert Emmet Community Development Project, members of the community, local businesses, artists, musicians, academics and digital technicians in response to the closure (and demolition) of the last sewing factory in Dublin's inner city. From the 21st August – 25th of September, the exhibition will be open to the public and will involve commissioned work, collaborative work and conceptual work engaging with industrial and post-industrial themes, the shifting world of labour, work and unemployment in one of Dublin’s most disadvantaged communities.

This seminar on the 25th of August from 10.00 – 3p.m. at the end of Heritage week is a key part of the exhibition, which seeks to create a public discussion around the future of work and new modes of exchange emerging within this shift. This is 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.
