Adult Workshop The Future of Ageing
The Wisdom Hour: Future Wisdom
What is wisdom, and does it have anything to do with how old you are?
Join the “The Wisdom Hour”, a creative storytelling space celebrating positive stories of ageing, facilitated by This Age Thing and Design Age Institute.
The Wisdom Hour invites participants to the Design Museum for a cup of tea and the opportunity to listen, share experiences of getting older and possibly even wiser. From stories of growth and leadership, quiet moments, magical accidents, and adventures at every age, these sessions are anchored in the belief that sharing the unique and diverse experiences of getting older can help us design a world that works better for everyone.
For this session, participants are invited to explore the Future of Ageing, an exciting new display curated by Design Age Institute and the Design Museum, followed by an interactive workshop led by This Age Thing’s George Lee.
Suitable Age: 50+ but all ages welcome.
Capacity is limited, please book in advance to avoid disappointment.
Refreshments will be provided.
Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. Visit our terms & conditions page for further information.
