The engAGE Creative Living Lab is an interactive space open 5 days a week for older adults, university researchers and the broader community to be students and teachers for each other while experimenting and exploring materials, ideas, and digital technologies together. We invite skill sharing, conversations and the building of a creative and inclusive community across generations and cultures.

“A Living Lab is a creative space where people with many different interests and backgrounds can collaborate in new and imaginative ways. Living Labs are also creative spaces for sharing technical skills and technical spaces for sharing creative skills. This makes Living Labs very special places.”
