Please join Parlour and Monash Architecture for our next Light at the End of the Tunnel session, looking at employment rights and obligations, responsibilities and care, in the pandemic. With John Held and Lewis Moore.

In this session, John Held and Lewis Moore will talk through the issues from employee and employer perspectives with Justine Clark and Naomi Stead and our highly active and engaged audience. We want to ensure that everyone knows their rights and meets their responsibilities. Beyond this, we are interested in how practices and the people who work in them can care for each other in the employment context as we navigate the pandemic.

John Held is the National President of the Association of Consulting Architects Director of Russell & Yelland, based in Adelaide. Lewis Moore studied architecture at Monash University and currently works as a Model Maker at Grimshaw Architects. He is a member and activist in the architects’ union (Professional Architects Australia), The Architecture Lobby and the Victorian Socialists.

See you online for an informal yet informative Q&A session.

Light at the End of the Tunnel is a Q & A event series, happening every Friday lunchtime AEST, for as long as we all need it. Hosted by Parlour and Monash Architecture this online talk series is to help our communities navigate the world of work, the futures of the profession and paths forward in the midst of the pandemic.

Each week one or two speakers will be online to answer our questions and yours on a wide range of topics – from the nitty gritty of how to negotiate, polishing up your CV and portfolio, and what to do with an unexpected career break, to broader speculations about the kind of profession we want and need, and how we might best position the discipline for the future.

These will be informal, interactive sessions aimed at equipping the Parlour communities for the path ahead, and encouraging the to actively participate in making the future of our profession.

In the meantime, watch Naomi and Justine chat about the idea, and do get in touch if there are topics you would like covered.

Mutual support, solidarity and camaraderie!
