Ashton Applewhite would like us to think differently about growing older. As written in her book, This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism…
“Aging is a natural, lifelong, powerful process that unites us all. So how come so many of us unthinkingly assume that depression, diapers, and dementia lie ahead? Because of ageism — the last socially sanctioned prejudice.”
Ashton Applewhite is a New York journalist, author and activist. She is a spokesperson for a movement to mobilize against discrimination on the basis of age and in 2015 she was included in a global list of 100 inspiring women who are committed to social change.
Ashton has spoken on the TED Main Stage and and the United Nations and now she’s coming to Byron Bay as part of her EveryAGE Counts tour. Join us for dinner and hear what she has to say.
More details coming soon.
