On 10 October at MGLC - Švicarija at 7 pm, we will present the prototypes for active aging that have been developed for the open call, organised by RogLab, the maker lab at the City Museum of Ljubljana and pilot project for Rog Centre, in coproduction with the Centre for Creativity under the auspices of MAO Museum of Architecture and Design and in partnership with MGLC and the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering. The four selected projects have received support and mentorship, and will now be available to all who might want to make them at home. The exhibition will be open up until 20 October.

Among the thirty selected project ideas four prototypes were created. Ina Nathalie Bölsing, Kaja Čufer, Tajda Dražić and Katarina Ekart, first year students at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, together with their mentor Alenka More, designed classically tailored clothes with adaptations for an easier use for the older generation. The retired entrepreneur Dušan Uršič developed his idea for a less strenuous staircase into additions for steps with anti-slip surfaces for a safer use. Maker Eamon Durey from fablab Nerve Centre from Northern Ireland created a hydroponic garden for all those who would love to tend their own, but health or circumstances don’t permit them to - his design is wheelchair accessible and easy to use. André Vanzolin’s prototype is an interactive game for one or more users, that helps train concentration and coordination and presents a fun challenge for people of all ages and a range of physical and cognitive abilities.

All those who might prefer to take a ride to the venue can take advantage of the Kavalir shuttle, which will collect passengers at the end of the Tivoli car park between 18:30 and 21:00.

Part of the partner network of the Center for Creativity, this project is co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund and the Republic of Slovenia.
