Event description

Description

This 2-hour interactive workshop, part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, invites participants to think about ageing through creative means. Research from MICRA, the Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing, has shown that people are reluctant to consider later life. This workshop encourages participants to create an image of their future.

The event will be held at the renowned Whitworth Art Gallery. Creative materials will be provided along with inspirational material about ageing. PhD students from the MICRA PhD Network will facilitate the session, and older people from the MICRA network will offer their perspectives. There will be prizes for the best creations, which will be featured on MICRA communications channels.

Participants will also be offered the opportunity to further new research in the social sciences by submitting their work for analysis to explore the key themes around ageing which arise from the workshop. This is on a voluntary basis and attendees will be fully briefed at the event.

The event will start promptly at 2pm in the Clore Learning Studios, which is easily accessed from the Parkside entrance of the Whitworth. Tea and coffee will be provided on arrival.
