Ageism - The Next Frontier

The ageing of our population is likely to be one of the biggest disruptions of the 21st Century, and with the creative industries tipped as one of the world's major growth sectors, embracing ageing will be a key strategy for success and resilience globally.

But are the creative industries prepared for the ageing revolution? Or are they inherently ageist, giving credence to the idea that 'creativity is only for the young'.

This event will challenge all sections of the creative industries - artists, performers, designers, musicians, creatives, IT developers, employers and entrepreneurs to tackle ageism head on.

Be part of an intergenerational challenge to come up with innovative solutions to ageism and the issues of an ageing population.

Using cutting edge technologies like VR, we will turn stereotypes on their head, giving participants a new way of looking at creativity and ageing, and helping to build resilient creative businesses.

Guest speakers and performers will set the scene for 90 minutes of thought provoking fun.          

Presented by The Ageing Revolution in collaboration with Devika. With thanks to all our volunteers and supporters! Event image by Daniel Breda.

THIS EVENT HAPPENS IN THE ROCKS

The Rocks is essentially the birthplace of modern Sydney. Get a sense of Sydney's past exploring The Rocks' cobbled laneways, cosy cafes and some of the oldest pubs in the country.

Around The Rocks is the best place to see the major projections and interactive installations, including the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) and Cadman’s Cottage. You can become a composer and dance on piano keys, a maestro who makes the Bridge sparkle or changes the colour of the cityscape. See what else is happening in The Rocks
