    Event description

    Intergenerational design session: Creating a new vision for intergenerational learning and living - a hands-on design workshop

    You are invited to participate in a hands-on design session, where we explore what an inclusive inter-generational learning and living campus might look like. The session will start with brief presentations from thought leaders outlining current best practice in the design of senior living, and describing the Grandschools model: a campus that integrates senior living and secondary education in the one physical environment that promotes intergenerational inclusivity, active living and learning, as well as the psychological health and wellbeing of participants of all ages.

    The second half of the session is ‘design imaginings’, known as a design charette, to develop ideas of how an intergenerational learning space can benefit marginalised youth and people with unique life experiences. You will be guided to work in groups, to share your ideas for creating intergenerational spaces. 

    This event forms part of the Grandschools project and participants will be asked to sign a consent form to allow their contributions to be used for research purposes. A research information sheet and consent form will be sent to all participants before the session, and can also be found here if you wish to view them before reserving your event ticket:

    The Grandschools project is a 5 year National Health and Medical Research (NHMRC) funded project to QUT, ACU and Fulton Trotter Architects re-imagining how we might live, work and play into the future ( – and we invite you to be part of the conversation!

    This event is supported by the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, COTA Queensland, and the Grandschools Project.
