Melbourne-based Matters Journal will launch its fourth issue on Saturday March 14, as part of Melbourne Design Week – examining the hopeful horizons of possibility embedded in our complicated present.
From the future of burial and intimacy to building benevolent AI and returning bushfire management to Country, the new Matters issue examines what we need to breach the gap between the future we want and the future we can achieve. It also explores new frontiers in digital culture and how they’ll shape future societies, asking questions like: “What does the future of learning look like?” And more importantly, “How can we learn our way to a better future?”
Featuring writing and illustrations from the likes of Amal Awad, Roz Bellamy, Claire G Coleman, Mia Timpano, Tai Snaith and Tyson Yunkaporta, the newest release from Matters Journal packs a punch.
Head along to the launch, ask big questions, enjoy complimentary food and drinks and celebrate the individuals, communities and ideas helping people learn – and unlearn – a path to a brighter future.
The event is one of three exciting initiatives hosted by Local Peoples on March 14th, along with 100 Jobs of the Future and College of the Curious. It will take place in the North Magdalen Laundry within the heritage-listed Abbotsford Convent precinct as part of Melbourne Design Week, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV.
