Come and explore the real-world circumstances behind Connections 2024 plays The Periodicals and Age is Revolting, with our panel and long-table discussion on the ways we care for young people and elders alike, both individually and as a society.

Listen to our expert panellists as they discuss some of the issues facing those in education, youth care and elder care, and the ways activists and policy makers are responding.

Then, join the discussion yourself in our ‘long-table’, where guests are invited to participate in a moderated public forum, sharing their own thoughts and experiences of how we care for our youngest and oldest.

This event is produced by the 2024 Young Producers placements.
