The Future World of Work Season
Part of Liverpool 2018, 10th anniversary of the European Capital of Culture
(May – July)
With studies suggesting that in 20 years’ time, half the jobs in the region may no longer exist. In 2018 the future of work will be the inspiration behind a whole season. FACT will lead on a series of artistic commissions linked to this big question which will take over the city centre and work alongside the International Business Festival and UNIGlobal (who represent 20 million workers worldwide), to bring some of the biggest and best thinkers to the city to tackle this idea.
Kazimier Productions will explore what changes in work will mean for the way we spend our spare time in a new project called Leisureland. Previously announced project RE:WIRE will see FACT and Leeds based Invisible Flock work with local communities to take over Toxteth Reservoir and explore the relationship between technology and the changing climate.
