After 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 September, the exhibition will be open to the public and will involve comissioned work, collaborative work and conceptual work engaging with industrial and post – industrial themes, the shifting world of labour, worj and unemployment in one of Dublin’s  most disadvantaged communities.

The seminar on 25th August from 10.00-3pm 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 Robert Emmet CDP to reflect on an increasing employment gap emerging in the current economy and its implication for future generations.
