What does being an ‘older person’ mean in work, the media, politics, community and home? COTA Victoria is celebrating International Day of Older Persons by hosting a conversation event with four older Australians unafraid to speak up and challenge assumptions around ageing.
Chaired by Lee Lin Chin, Jane Caro, along with Uncle Jack Charles and Lois Peeler, will debate what it’s like to be an older person in a society that is challenged by ageism. Lee Lin Chin has cult status on social media platforms, and a long history of media experience, most notably as SBS newsreader. As regular participant on the ABC’s Gruen Transfer, Jane Caro is a well-known social commentator and writer. Lois Peeler is Principal of Worawa Aboriginal College, songstress of The Sapphires fame and noted indigenous leader with a passion for girls’ education. Australian Aboriginal actor, musician and Aboriginal elder, Uncle Jack Charles, currently advocating for and mentoring Indigenous inmates.
The event will take place at the Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale St, Wednesday 4 October 1-2.30pm.
