Facing our future self
Dr Curie Scott
One in five people alive today will reach their 100th birthday. You are going to grow old but have you thought about it? Ageing is a taboo subject and older people are often stereotyped and overlooked. Dr Curie Scott invited people over 60 and students from Health & Social Care professional courses to four drawing workshops. Come and hear how drawing about ageing made a startling difference to their current lives. In terms of ageing, we cannot separate ourselves from our future older self, however much we want to do so. ‘They’ are the ‘we’ of the future.
Plus, why not send us a request to be added to our Public Engagement mailing list and be the first to hear about all our events and activities.
We look forward to seeing you!
