The Cultures of Ageing

Chaired by Tom Scharf, Professor of Social Gerontology at Newcastle University, this discussion will explore how culture and where you grow up shapes your views of ageing. It will look at whether some cultures view ageing more positively than others and whether there is anything we can learn from other cultural contexts. 

This event is organised by Age & Opportunity as part of the Bealtaine Festival celebrating linguistic diversity through the arts in Ireland.
