I believe that older people are one of the most interesting and wonderful cohorts of people on the planet - but somewhere along the way we've lost sight of this. We need to turn this around, not just because older people deserve better - but also because doing so would make the world a better place for all of us. I believe such a significant cultural shift requires a broad range of strategies. Strategies are needed to encourage every Australian roll up their sleeves, embrace their own ageing and rethink their interactions with older people - this is what Celebrate Ageing sets out to do.
Celebrate Ageing - in a nut shell
Celebrate Ageing is a National Program challenging ageism and building respect for older people. This self-funded Program was established in 2016 by Dr Catherine Barrett, a facilitator, capacity builder, researcher and artist with over 30 years experience working with older people. The Celebrate Ageing program includes The Tea Cosy Project: art & narratives challenging ageism. We also have 3 other projects with their own websites.
