When came across the event I could connect to it immediately. I knew, as a gig worker and an artist, that I wanted to be a part of the discussion, but nothing could have prepared me for how damn good the experience was.

The biggest added value of Reshaping Work’s projects and events is the ability to have genuine and open interactions with people from all sides of the debate. It is a place to hear new ideas, and it is great to see people making an effort to reach across the aisle and truly understand each other. This makes these conversations reach a very high level.
