About the event

My self-confidence depends on the fact that I have discovered my dimensions. It does not become me to make myself less than I am.”1 At the cusp of a dramatic change to our communities - in less than 10 years, older people will represent the majority of the population2 - let’s examine our negative associations of age and reshape them with creative, mindful explorations of the value of age. Acknowledging our anxieties, fears, hopes and dreams, we will use a mix of creative writing and personal anecdotes (kept as private as you’d like) to examine our sense of self through the changes age brings. All we need is you and your experiences, whatever your decade.

All participants will get a printed copy of their work.
