The Greater Manchester Older People’s Network (GMOPN) are excited to be launching a new Positive Ageing Imagery Project. The project will be looking at why stereotypical images of wrinkly hands that reinforce negativity around ageing are used in the media to represent older people. We want to replace these images with more positive ones that celebrate older people and ageing. Helen Morris, who will be volunteering with the GMOPN over the coming months, will be facilitating this project and is looking for older people who are interested in getting involved.
Please circulate this message to your contacts and help us to encourage a diverse range of people, aged 50 and over, in Greater Manchester, to get involved in this project by:
- Joining our focus group
- Becoming an online image reviewer
Anyone keen to become involved or offering other suggestions please contact Liz on 0161 834 9823 or email: [email protected]
