Lecturer: Janna Holmstedt

Location: Electrolux, Sankt Göransgatan 143, Stockholm, Sweden

About the event

This event is part of Vinnova financed project DIGI Futures, lead by the RISE Research Institutes of Sweden in collaboration with ABB, Electrolux, Karolinska, Nacka Kommun, GodEl, and NAV Sweden.

The hostess Soft Innovaitress invites you to immerse into a poetic landscape of the future of work through a multidisciplinary artistic approach you have not experienced before. You will meet the AI as well as the human heroes of our future scenarios made during the past year with teams from Electrolux, ABB, GodEl, Nacka Kommun, and Karolinska. Questions about the future of work will be discussed: What will be the new jobs of the future? How will humans and machines relate to each other in new ways? What kind of re-skilling do we need to go through to arrive to that future? And where can we find poetics and softness in this landscape of the future work? Join us and actively explore your own journey into the future you want to co-create.
