The Anyone Remember The Washhouse? prototype team will be holding a book launch and interactive exhibit at the M Shed, Bristol, on Wednesday 15th November 2023 (11am-2pm). Tickets are free through Skiddle.

We are thrilled to announce our Connecting through Culture Project Showcase, which will be held at Watershed, Bristol, on October 17 (10am-4pm). Tickets are free through our Eventbrite page.

Join our collective of researchers, older adult co-designers, community partners and the project’s six prototype teams for an interactive event, where we will share some of the learning, creative outputs and impacts from the project.

In the morning, connect with our research team, co-researchers and project partners through a series of conversations exploring the relationships between older adults and technology, and imagining ways forward for co-design. Then in the afternoon, experience the project’s six prototypes through a series of drop-in workshops. Be transported to another place through a multisensory dining experience with Tabletop Travels. Browse stories that re-enforce and invigorate the message of vibrancy and value that older women hold in society with Retirement Reloaded: Wonderful Women of Words. Uncover elder stories and memories from the wash house and bath house through zines and soundscapes with Anyone Remember the Washhouse? Use off-the-shelf technology to create a wearable, interactive patch with Expressive Pockets. Discover more about Recycle City, a speculative city founded on the values of creativity, community, opportunity and welfare. Or immerse yourself in Murmurations, an installation and collection of experiences and languages that share the hidden words of older people, queer people and the crip community.

Please note some elements will have limited capacity for which there will be sign-up sheets on the day.
