Event description

Description

The Empathy Tour/Workshop is based on a simple idea. We provide some props, you get to walk in the shoes of somebody else for a moment.
Experience the town and buildings in an old age simulation suit, with a pushchair and/ or with crutches.
We invite any curious soul, architects, designers and urban planners, students and practitioners to join our tour and understand the boundaries that exist in London and depend on the stage of life. We invite the participants to experience the city from a point of view of an older person, pregnant woman, a person in a wheelchair, a person with a pushchair, a blind person or a person with hearing problems. Participants will try various props to simulate different stages of life including SD&C Senior Suit, specially shipped from Germany for the workshop.

The workshop / tour will be divided into shorter slots of activities to allow the participants to try different props. Time slots 10am, 11am, 12pm.
