Now in its third year, the 2018 VicForum is once again being held in Melbourne during Victoria’s Cultural Diversity Week. This year’s forum ‘Digital Humanity: Exploring our Ecosystem’ will focus on how Victoria’s diverse communities fit into our increasingly digital world. Organised by Polaron Language Services, in partnership with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and the Victorian Multicultural Commission, the aim of the forum is to bring together likeminded businesses, entrepreneurs and communities to discuss multicultural opportunities and innovative solutions in Victoria. Contributing event partners include Wattleshire, NAATI, Refugee Talent, Polish Australian Business Forum, Australian National University and AALC.
The exciting program features discussion panels, art installations, live incubator presentations and musical performances. We will cover three themes: Work, Life & Play and Death. We believe in the exchange of ideas and have allowed plenty of time for questions, debates and experiential learning. Whilst we won’t have all the answers, we will bravely attempt to ask many challenging questions. How soon will AI be taking over your job? Will you be able to download intimacy, friendships and human touch from the IoT? And what happens to your digital music collection when you die?
This year’s forum will be held on the 23rd of March at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s Conference rooms in Docklands.
