PUBLICATION BY CHRIS DOLAN
This publication is part of Glasgow's Cultural Pathfinder project for older people. The project has been about sparking interest in and widening access to the arts for people over 60 in Glasgow in initiating new dialogues around arts and age. This has seen older people as performers, artists, participants and audiences and also involved working across different generations, with older and younger people coming together through the arts. As the general population is ageing it feels increasingly important to explore more deeply what it means to grow older and look at how this might find expression here in Glasgow. This was the starting point for 'Hour After Hour', along with an interest in how a Glasgow based writer would approach the subject and how writing might reflect and challenge notions of age and growing older.
