Actions and Detail Panel
Moral Technologies: The Technological Age of Human Life
Fri., 07/04/2017, 9:00 am – Mon., 10/04/2017, 4:00 pm AEST
*Together we will explore the nature of technology, morality and the agreements that shape our relationships, our societies and our future(s).
*Investigate the consciousness and creativity needed to meet the challenges and opportunities in this technological age.
As well as lectures from Orland, the event will include conversations, activities and workshops to encourage a deep exploration of our relationship to technology and our inner capacity to create change as human beings. Creative ways of digesting the work will be a key component of this event, which will also feature special options for younger people.
Orland Bishop combines a deep dedication to human rights advocacy and cultural renewal with an extensive study of medicine, naturopathy, psychology and indigenous cosmologies. He was a research fellow with the Centre for the Study of Violence and Social Change at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science in Los Angeles and has consulted with many human development organisations.
The retreat centre is in beautiful grounds in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, easily accessible by bus. Accommodation is in twin share rooms for those who stay on site. Meals will be vegetarian and we will accommodate special dietary requests.
