COMMUNITY-BUILDING &

EVENTS

Aging Activisms is an intergenerational collective: a growing network of people and groups who share an interest in understanding and supporting the activisms undertaken by people of different ages, abilities, and backgrounds, across a variety of movements. This collective strives to meet up and collaborate as frequently as possible, both virtually and face-to-face, and looks forward to these magical and transformative moments of cross-generation, cross-movement connection.

Aging Activisms 2015

October 2015

 

Aging Activisms 2015 was the inaugural symposium of the Aging Activisms community. For two days in October 2015, we gathered as a group of academics, students, and activists – four generations of women – to discuss why and how we work for social change across our lifecourses.

Montreal, QC

 

The Aging Activisms Media Capsules Workshop has its genesis at the Aging Activisms Symposium held at Trent in October of 2015. Responding to a call from participants to continue the conversations and build our relationships, May Chazan (Trent) partnered with Kim Sawchuk (Concordia), and a number of their talented grad students and associates, to dream up this interactive workshop. This event reconvened the Aging Activisms community, this time in Montreal, and provided a way for us to begin sharing our stories more widely.
