‘A Future That Doesn’t Work?’ is a public conversation with Natalie Bennett (Leader of the Green Party) and Nick Srnicek (co-author of the Accelerationist Manifesto).

Zero-hour contracts, collapsing real wages, multiple jobs, and unpaid internships – most of us are experiencing a crisis in the relationship between ‘work’ and the wage. But is fighting for ‘more work’ the answer to our problems, or must we question the very nature of work? Why does the increasing automation of work currently present a crisis, rather than an opportunity for liberation? What does the future of work look like? Can we organize towards worlds that break the relationship between useful activity and the wage?

This is the second in the Conversations on the Future series

Hosted by Plan C Manchester.
