For Dutch Design Week and Kunstroute65 I gave elderly a look into what it is like to be a designer. From brainstorming and making a mindmap to making the first prototype to be able to present one’s idea to another. The elderly experienced a full design process during my workshops.
From December 2014 till February 2016
"Over the past few years, I worked with Wisse on Art Route 65, a project to make seniors better acquainted with the contemporary culture and the work of the creative industry, as can be seen at Dutch Design Week. As a connection maker and a staunch promoter of Dutch Design, Wisse came into his own with this target group who still looks a little uncomfortable at Dutch Design Week. Many seniors lack insight into how broad the professional field of design is, and even more so how they themselves can design their ‘life’. Wisse took the elderly along in design thinking projects in which participants designed inspiring solutions for a healthy and dynamic lifestyle."
