MyFutures: looking back and forward

In this Labtalk Eefje Ernst en Froukje Sleeswijk Visser will elaborate on the MyFutures project. MyFutures is a two year Research through Design (RtD) project and comes to an end in June 2018. The main quesiton of the project is how we can support people in thinking, planning, arranging their own futures in our changing Dutch society. We will reflect on our RtD approach and share some of the insights. The approach was participatory, so a close collaboration with our partners in the field. Towards the end of the project we use a dissemination strategy to empower a wider audience that can apply the MyFutures learnings in their own practice in order to create impact. We will reflect on this dissemination approach (what seems to work and wat not) and would love to have a discussion with StudioLab members about spreading the knowledge with various stakeholders in order to create impact.

After the labtalk we will watch the movie and order some pizza’s. The movie Young@Heart is a roadmovie about a group of elderly people in a choir. The movie is funny and touching and gives an inspiring view on becoming old. Please join us!!

Froukje Sleeswijk Visser, Eefje Ernst and Pieter Jan Stappers are the investigators in the MyFutures project that has been running for close to two years.
