Intergen is a series of artist-led interventions that critically reflect on modes of intergenerational knowledge making and sharing.
The 5 interventions will be co-designed in exchanges by and between artists, researchers, leaders and advocates within and across communities.
Intergen disrupts institutional knowledge production and challenges the community informant role by offering a multiplicity of sites of co-presence, co-creating and co-thinking.
Intergen is a program that offers organisational learnings and applications, on how to support the breadth and depth, the nuance, and daily moments of intergenerational practices.
