Life and Times – Living on Digital Platforms

A Melbourne Forum Interest Group

Hosted by:
Nicholas Jackson
Trisha Avery

September 15 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Keeping up work and social life means moving between multiple digital platforms each day and learning many new skills. How do we do it? And what effects is it having on our communication or well-being?

Let’s talk about digital platforms, who and what they are, and their effects, short and longer-term, upon us.

We may all be living in interesting times, to quote the apocryphal curse, but how we choose to do so is up to us.

We might find new ways to celebrate family by feasting, turn a formal dining room into a makeshift gymnasium, reach for the farthest corners of our library, go back to university to complete that long-delayed thesis, practice mindfulness in the tool shed or strategize rebuilding the economy and creating a new culture of work. There is at least as much that we can do than there is the obverse that we can’t.

Why not join a group that’s prepared to share the spoils of this pandemic?

Remember, our interest groups are for members only and are kept to low numbers to ensure we each get plenty of airtime, so get in quick!
