Between November 2009 and March 2010 TTK worked in partnership with People Brands, and their subsidiary company ArtGym, to design and develop 4 intergenerational learning workshops. Funded by the Learning Revolution and Transformation Fund, from the Department of Business Innovation and Skills, together we created the largest creative community visioning event ever to have been held in the UK!

Targeted at 2 generations: young residents between the ages of 19-25 and older residents over 55 years, (although all were welcomed) the event saw over 200 local people brought together to remember the past, explore the present and imagine the future.

Working alongside artists, film-makers and designers, this diverse group shared their experiences of Kingston and their ideas for transforming it into an even greener, happier place.

The event was a great success. Outputs from the workshops will be on display in Kingston Museum in June, and four participants have been offered training to help turn some of the great ideas generated by participants into reality. The whole process was also captured and edited into a documentary to show the rest of the world.
