Here We Grow - Listen Online

25 Jul 2018

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. It is called 'Here We Grow' and is a hybrid book of words, pictures and sounds about growing older in Bristol. 

On top of this, Lily joined forces with Pat Gregory, a member of BAB’s steering group. Equipped with a dictaphone, the duo collected interviews and stories about what project leaders and older people had to say about how Age Friendly the city is.

The interviews they conducted were focused around nine projects, that reflect the nine factors that make a city Age Friendly, as laid out in BAB’s Age Friendly Charter.
