What makes a city the kind of place where you can grow older and be an older person?

BAB has been working with No Bindings to explore the key question we ask ourselves when thinking about how we can make Bristol more Age Friendly.
 
Older artists and writers  have come together to develop a work of art that gives some answers to this question.

The work, called "Here we grow" has been important for the Age Friendly Bristol project and we want to give you a chance to see this creative piece at a series of launches BAB has organised at various local libraries around the city.
 
When and where are the launches happening?
