New Generation — Design for Living
Design Manchester

A two-day con­fer­ence with pres­en­ta­tions and work­shops, co-curated with Alice Ket­tle and Age-Friendly Man­ches­ter.

The New Gen­er­a­tion — De­sign for Liv­ing event looked at the chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties in de­sign­ing our city from in­ter­gen­er­a­tion­al per­spec­tives. Our aim was to iden­ti­fy new pos­si­bil­i­ties for in­ter­gen­er­a­tion­al col­lab­o­ra­tion, ex­plor­ing how our city is re-imagined, de­sign­ed and in­habit­ed by fu­ture com­mu­ni­ties. The sym­po­si­um was host­ed by Man­ches­ter Met­ro­pol­i­tan Uni­ver­sity with De­sign Man­ches­ter, Age-Friendly Man­ches­ter, Man­ches­ter City Coun­cil and the Co-op.

The con­fer­ence and ex­tend­ed ac­tiv­i­ty was doc­u­ment­ed by film,  Huw Wahl
