Join us for Future Ways of Living 3!
Future Ways of Living (FWoL) is a collaborative design exploration that was initiated by the Institute without Boundaries (IwB) and Meet the Media Guru to explore the impact of existing and emerging technologies on the way we live. FWoL 3 will challenge participants to imagine the future of creative work in alignment with technological advancement.
• How will creative industries (workplaces, ecosystems) transform in response to emerging technologies? • What new jobs will be created or eliminated as a result of technological transformation? • What will the products, services and systems output by creative industries look like? • What are the social, environmental and economic impacts of this transformation?
