Expected outcomes
Knowledge from a co-design experiment on ageing, leading participants to create together an interactive object including a joint reflection on:
(1) How museums and cities could contribute to improve creative aging;
(2) How technologies can help supporting creative ageing initiatives;
(3) How an intergenerational dialogue can be supported.

The questions and comments will be valued in the co-design activity during the workshop.

Theme: Active/Creative Aging


The workshop aims to engage the participants in a creative activity aiming to explore creative ageing initiatives and engage them in a joint creative multimedia activity. The group will work on problems while walking downtown Montreal and through the exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.

This seminar will be a creative venture and a walking micro-living lab to find solutions collectively. How the cities can help? Why is it important to partner with cultural institutions and public places? What are the main problems to work on? We are all responsible of helping people to age creatively.

A walking seminar to stimulate a brainstorming to age creatively. We will film and document the events and the results to this action-creation research.
