This event will examine what it means to age creatively. We will draw on examples from older people who have made their creative debuts later in life, as well as examine how acts of everyday creativity can enable older people to feel an enhanced sense of wellbeing. We will bring together researchers and older creatives in showcasing the wealth of creative activity that we can engage with across our lifetimes.

This seminar will explore the role of creativity as we age, examining how creative activity can enhance the sense of a life well lived, as well as reduce some of the stigma associated with growing older. During this seminar there will be lightning-style presentations from researchers in the area of Creative Ageing, as well as invited guests who will share their personal creative journeys. We will facilitate a number of discussions by asking questions about what creative ageing means, as well as how we might choose to age creatively ourselves. This event will be facilitated by members of the British Society of Gerontology’s Creative Ageing Special Interest Group.
