What is Wisdom?


In October we were delighted to launch The Wisdom Hour workshops at the Design Museum with This Age Thing. Join our next session on 11 December.

Facilitated by This Age Thing‘s by George Lee, these interactive workshops explored how we define wisdom and if getting wiser has anything to do with getting older.

Guest speakers included Colum Lowe, Director of the Design Age Institute and Maggy Pigott CBE, Vice-Chair of Open Age, discussing wisdom through objects.

Participants brought a range of personal objects and items that represented wisdom for them and shared insights into how they have gained or lost wisdom.

Illustrator Jess Nash took part in the workshop to visually capture the sessions, and her colourful illustrations can be viewed below.

The next session of the Wisdom Hour takes place on 11 December at the Design Museum, exploring gifts & giving. Tickets can be booked here.
