    【Brand New Youth - Design Workshop】IDK Design Thinking Workshop: “A Tale of Two Generations” Interactive Theatre

    Empathy is at the heart of Design Thinking. This workshop is an interactive journey for you to experience a variety of elderly needs, focusing on empathy as the basis to foster intergenerational communication. The interactive theatre brings you into daily scenarios of young and old, where audience can co-create their desired endings. Participants might also immerse in an 80-year-old’s experience by trying out an elderly simulation suit, for an understanding of daily painpoints faced by the elderly.

    Remarks: The elderly simulation suit may not be suitable for all participants due to its weight. As a result, staff would arrange this experience session in light of the actual circumstances.
