The Wisdom Hour: Gifts and Giving

11 December 2021 | 2pm – 4pm

The Design Museum, 224-238 Kensington High St, London, W8 6AG

Adult: £5

Design Museum Members: Free

This Winter, join The Wisdom Hour at the Design Museum, a creative storytelling space celebrating positive stories of ageing, facilitated by This Age Thing and Design Age Institute.

The Wisdom Hour invites participants to the Design Museum for a cup of tea and biscuits and the opportunity to listen, share experiences and tell stories of ageing well.

For these seasonal sessions, let's celebrate the wisdom of giving and receiving gifts and get together to have fun and discuss:

Why do we give gifts?
Does giving make us more joyful?
What makes a good gift?
Do we get better at giving gifts as we get older?

As part of the workshop, we invite participants to bring a story or object that represents the best (or worst) gift they ever received, or the best (or worst) gift they have ever given.

Refreshments will be provided.


Suitable Age: 50+ but all ages welcome
Capacity: 30 people per workshop session.
