The Esquire Talks strives to promote conversation and critical thinking, where, in each session, we host a group of panellists to consider the topic of the day. For our first session in 2019 (scroll down for event details), we take on a familiar phenomenon that connects distinctive individuals working towards a common goal—collaboration.
This is also in conjunction with our March issue which explores the same theme and sees us collaborating with five local artists to interpret what 'Unsuitable for the Young' means to them into a graphic T-shirt design—you can purchase the limited edition tees at the Esky shop.
So what does it truly mean to collaborate? Is it to benefit from the partner's skill set which we may lack? Are there any pitfalls to avoid if the alliance doesn't work out as planned?
LIVE POLL: What's your stance and attitude towards collaboration
