The Creative Lives network brought together a range of researchers, arts organisations and older artists to share their insights on ageism.
The report that follows is a culmination of conversations that took place across two symposia in 2020. It outlines the legal context of ageism in the UK, summarises the key issues identified by the network and presents some recommendations for implementing substantial, long-term changes that positively transform the creative professions and ultimately older people’s lives.
