Shopping rituals for older adults
Dana Raslan is studying for a Masters in Architecture at Newcastle University. This project is looking as designing a proposal for a skill centre in Eldon Square shopping centre in Newcastle. The skill centre is a place which would give older adults the opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences with the younger generation.
As part of the research, the researcher would like to gather feedback, views and experiences of older people and learn about the positive and/or negative aspects of shopping in Newcastle.
There is no age limit on taking part but the researcher is particularly interested in hearing from people who are retired and aged over 65. Some of the questions will specifically be about shopping in Newcastle and Eldon Square so you must have some experience of visiting the city centre as well.
What will I be asked to do?
You will be asked to join a call with the researcher and answer a series of questions about your experiences of shopping, particularly in Newcastle City Centre. This will take approximately 15-30 minutes.
There will also be the opportunity for one person to meet the researcher in person (when restrictions and guidelines allow) and record your feedback. Please specify if you would be interested in this when registering to take part.
When and where?
The calls will take place in November and December 2020 via Zoom.
Appointments will be arranged for a convenient time.
Will I get anything for taking part?
Travel expenses and refreshments will be provided for the person who answers the questions face to face.
