The future of work is changing. Many networks and collectives around the world have been exploring and practising how to create radically collaborative, innovative and caring workplaces - and they have a lot to share.

Ouishare Barcelona & Enspiral
At this evening book-launch event, practitioners from the networks Enspiral and Ouishare—spanning from New Zealand to Europe—will share stories and knowledge from the front-lines of working together in their collaborative networks. You will hear about the challenges and potential of building entrepreneurial collectives, as well as the legal and institutional structures needed to support these networked ways of working.
Enspiral is a community of entrepreneurs experimenting at the edges of ownership, governance, decision making, resource sharing, and organisational design. After nearly a decade of testing and growing ideas, they have published their first collectively written book with 11 co-authors, Better Work Together.
