Join contributors Charlotte Wood, Tony Birch and Vicki Laveau-Harvie, along with editor Ashley Hay, for the launch of Griffith Review 68: Getting On – a fascinating exploration of what it means to grow older in a world where seventy is the new fifty.

The world’s expectations of ageing, maturities and mortalities have been completely recast by COVID-19, making it more timely than ever to re-imagine the potential benefits – as well as the challenges – of these phases of life. And with the virus’s particular impacts on our ageing population, it’s time to challenge – and rectify – the exclusion of the elderly from our culture and focus on people as people, not as problems to be solved.

With new work from Helen Garner, Gabbie Stroud, David Sinclair, Samuel Wagan Watson, Andrew Stafford, Jay Phillips, Jane R Goodall, Glenn A Albrecht, Leah Kaminskyand many more, Griffith Review 68: Getting On contributes to this necessary conversation, offering an insightful exploration of the changing truths of ageing, and some causes for celebration.
