I am currently developing a new collaborative practice around the theme of Social Revolution 5.0. This work explores – through thinking, writing and making – what new forms of social support we need to flourish in a world that is being rapidly transformed by the combined forces of a technology revolution and climate change. A manifesto for this work that I have developed with like minded thinkers and doers can be found here. In a first phase of practice I will be exploring what good work might look like in this century: how can we go beyond the vital but gendered concept of 20th century working rights, to re-imagine how good working lives might be structured from end to end, integrating time to care, to play and to engage with new forms of learning. I will looking specifically at new forms of worker organisation in 2020.
My ideas and working methods have grown through collaboration and three decades of practice. Earlier work and writing will be available on this page which is currently in development.
