Event description
Join us for dinner in Byron Bay and hear from Ashton Applewhite, a leading voice in activism against ageism.

About this Event

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.”

This networking event is a chance for health, social and community care providers to come together with local government and the wider North Coast community to enjoy a 2-course dinner at the brand new Beef and Beach Byron Bay. It’s time to talk about ageism and celebrate growing older.
