Golden Years Caravan coming to Stockport
Retirement: the golden time in life. A chance to travel the world, legitimately use the phrase, ‘not in my day’, whilst rolling around in your massive retirement fund with a grey-blue rinse.
As an ageing population spending almost a third of our lives in our ‘golden years’, how do we disrupt and push back against the stereotypes of cruises and compression stockings?
Grab a brew inside The Golden Years Caravan, a roving cinema and art gallery featuring a series of ambitious artworks which confront common perceptions of ageing and retirement.
The Golden Years Caravan is a celebration of the curiosity, creativity and culture of Greater Manchester’s ‘golden generation’ and shares stories of what it’s really like to grow older in Greater Manchester in 2019.
Conceived and curated by Art with Heart, The Golden Years Caravan will feature Our Time Is Now; a short film by Thirty Pound Gentleman and neighbours from Manchester Cares, Old Stock, New Stock; a photographic exhibition by Joe Oli Smith and women from the Apna Ghar day centre, part of Ambition for Ageing in Rochdale and artworks by Theatre Designer Irene Jade and craft groups in Salford.
Golden years will be in Stockport on 14th July 11am-4pm at The Vintage Market, Market Place, SK1 1ES
