In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ageing Well – Riding the waves of change one-day conference brings together academics, industry partners and community members to explore what ageing well means, and the diversity of factors that influence the individual experience of an otherwise intangible concept.

This event will have a particular focus on how co-design, art and innovation can be used in research and practice settings to develop strategies, programs and settings that can facilitate wellbeing, connectedness and happiness as people age.

The program includes academic presentations by leading researchers in the field of ageing, ‘fireside chat’ and Q&A with Lindy Morrison and Keryn Curtis, a lived experience panel discussion, a hands-on interactive co-design workshop and presentations from our early career researchers.

  • Learn about current research which examines ageing and wellbeing
  • Gain insights into how art and creativity can give voice to older people and be useful tools in research
  • Participate in our hands-on co-design workshop to understand how to apply co-design methodologies
  • Hear from our diverse lived experience panel
