This Senate Select Committee Inquiry on the Future of Work and Workers examines the impact of technological and other change on the future of work and workers in Australia.

In this submission, the authors draw attention to the risk that mainstream employment will decline as automatable jobs are lost. They argue that even in the best-case scenario in which new jobs replace automated jobs, there is a risk that the skills and experience that new jobs require will not match those of the unemployed, meaning that a large proportion of the population will be unemployed and unable to be employed in new jobs. They highlight the potential disproprtionate impact upon one section of Australian society, Indigenous peoples, who are already in deep ‘employment’ difficulty.

In this submission to the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Indigenous Affairs, Professor Altman explains his concerns about the increasing presence of inauthentic Indigenous ‘style’ artwork and how it can damage Indigenous culture.

This submission looks into the inauthentic selling of Indigenous ‘style’ artwork and looks into the many different channels through which non Indigenous people are able to sell Indigenous art without the permission of the Indigenous artists. It also briefly mentions the Katter Bill 2017 in relation to the exploitation of Indigenous culture and also focuses on the Fake Art Harms Culture campaign.
