Online conference: Healthy Ageing, Creativity and Quality of Life through Narrative (ECAVINAR) December 3 2020

On the 3rd of December 2020, members of Grup Dedal-Lit and GESEC organised an online conference in order to share the results obtained during a four-year research project on Healthy Ageing, Creativity and Quality of Life through Narrative (ECAVINAR) with more than a hundred participants who had enrolled for the event.

The speakers insightfully expounded the many ways in which the complex process of growing older is experienced and expressed through narrative within the frameworks of cultural/literary and social gerontology. They highlighted that creativity, commonly attributed to younger generations, is an inherent aspect of ageing. This virtue subverts the hegemonic ideas of older people’s passivity and futility, and in doing so it undermines the culturally constructed stereotypes associated with inactivity as well as physical and mental decline in later life. In addition, it positively influences the quality of life of older people themselves and all those around them.

The conference included two panels and a debate, both of which were open for the general public, followed by a closed session with policy makers, as well as undergraduates of health and social sciences who attended as guests. It concluded with a dramatized reading of Teresa Pàmies’s work ("La llibertat irrenunciable: viure i escriure") which took place in the Auditorio de Cappont and was transferred on streaming.
