The Changing Nature of Work and the Workplace – A Writing Workshop facilitated by Marlon de Souza
2020 and 2021 will long be remembered for the once in a hundred years pandemic and equally, with the associated lockdowns. Global disruptions in transportation, work and employment have caused substantial and often complete breakdowns in many industries and thereby, communities. Simultaneously, other industries and communities have experienced accelerated evolution and growth. In the process, the very nature of work and employment has changed.
This writing workshop will explore the changes we are undergoing as individuals and as communities arising from shifts in work patterns. In disruptive times such as these, we are presented with the opportunity to pause and consider what work and the workplace have meant, what they now mean and what they are becoming. Using the vehicles of stillness and community inquiry, we will explore the choices we consciously make and their impact on our lives.
