VIVID IDEAS: Unworking: how the future will set you free

We’re utterly optimistic about the future of work.

Some believe the 4th industrial revolution will bring with it, an ‘apocalypse of work’ for human-kind. Not us. We’re utterly optimistic about the future of work and new-found freedoms it will bring.

We believe that AI and robotics will elevate workers out of mundane, repetitive tasks bringing life-changing benefits like shorter work weeks and better work-life balance.

Joining us and beaming in from their workplaces of the future, our panel of local and international experts will cast their sights forward to the nirvana of work; Sydney 2029. They will share their respective visions for;

> Careers: How upskilling and continuous learning will uncap future career-prospects
> Workplaces; How productivity will inform where and how we work
> Communications; How new interfaces will shape our outputs
> Health: How wellness and work will be intrinsically linked
> Transportation: How the transport-revolution will unleash our access to work

An immersive live experience, attendees will also be invited to contribute their own ideas and perspectives to the conversation.

Get tickets here.

The first in a series of “Design the Future” events hosted by Unthink on the Academy Xi campus, explores how designers can transfer their existing skills to design for Voice User Interfaces (VUIs) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) – transitioning from visual to invisible interfaces maybe easier than you think.

Unthinkable Drinks - The Future Of Advertising Is In Your Hands

Unthinkable Drinks - The Future Of Advertising Is In Your Hands

Is Advertising Future Fit or Completely F@#ked?

A midweek meet up for Adland exec's who like to drink. Genius.

This is the chance to get together with many smart, talented folks in advertising and talk about what the future holds for the industry going forward.

A couple of recent articles we wrote about the lack of innovation in advertising struck a chord with its most valuable contributor - you. Instead of just whining, we thought maybe we would do something about it. Over a wine!

So we’ve created Unthinkable Drinks - a midweek event for smart, talented Marketing and Advertising folks to meet up, share their views and draw from the wisdom of the crowd.

It’s not a presentation. It’s not a lecture. And there's no content capture. It’s drinks and a chat. Hopefully we’ll all walk away with a little more understanding about the future of advertising and a few new people to talk to them about.
