Community Engagement

Join an AGE Affinity Group. AGE offers unique group experiences that provide rich opportunities to engage in the arts and social justice.

Advanced Conversations:
This is an affinity space for people who identify as womxn in the second half of their life. Are you interested in exploring what it means to advance in age, wisdom, and experience while opportunities for recognition become fewer? Join us for meaningful conversations and programs. Together we can support, validate, empower, and encourage new discoveries. Please sign up on this page if you are interested in participating and/or hosting an Advanced Conversation.

AGE Advanced Conversations: Reclaiming the Crone

AGE Advanced Conversations: Reclaiming the Crone

What is a crone?  If you do crossword puzzles, you will find the clue “hag.”  If you love literature and theatre, you might conjure up the three old witches in Macbeth. You will hear their croaking voices intoning, “Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble” as they cackle over their cauldron of mischief.  The Google dictionary says a crone is an old woman who is thin and ugly.

ENOUGH!
