My local area theme

What’s on offer?

Women’s experiences of age and ageing have been associated with a sense of invisibility in society - join Lancaster Arts in person or online for a conversation that considers routes to visibility through research and creativity drawing on the insights of researchers, artists, community partners and everyone in the room. 

What’s it about?

Come ready to reflect, question and be inspired as we explore questions including: How does gender impact the experience of ageing? How does age impact our experience of gender? What role can the arts play in enabling us to share, make visible, question and reflect upon these experiences? Do we want to be visible anyway? What are the shared questions that social science researchers, arts practitioners and people living in Lancaster are interested in exploring?
