I work with marginalised families across Victoria in the education sector as a psychologist. I'm also an artist. I've always been struck by the fact that so many of the children and young people that I work with who do not engage in institutional education love the arts. I would like to work on the idea that a basic income for all would allow people on the margins who do not engage in the mainstream to thrive and lead.
An online symposium exploring ideas of basic income and the need for an approach to economy that puts creativity and care at its centre. Led by a panel of artists, researchers, economists, scientists and philosophers, the symposium responds to current and ongoing planetary crises, and positions creativity and social ecology as integral to shaping policy and systems of value.
