Special Edition: The Last Dance

The received wisdom is that getting old is bad. If you wish to resist this socially normalised self-sabotage, come and join All Change and Well Versed to celebrate The Last Dance anthology launch, International Day of the Older Person, and National Poetry Day.

Well Versed is a collective of ordinary, extraordinary older people who make and share poetry for connection, escape, solace, witness, protest and fun.

Working with poet Francesca Beard and a very special guest, The Last Dance layers spoken word, music, movement and visuals, ending with a Q&A that invites the audience to discuss arts activism, ageing, care and community.
