How can we collectively shift away from widespread experiences of exploitation in the architecture industry to that of a new, empowered and future-proof profession?

Architecture and related design fields are professions where ‘passion’ is sometimes used to excuse an exploitative workplace culture. In light of emerging movements around the world to counter the worsening plight of architectural workers, Professional Architects Australia presents a talk between local and international practitioners, advocates and academics.

Hear from a diverse selection of guest speakers about their experiences, and share your thoughts in an open audience dialogue afterwards.
