Join us for a screening of the award-winning short documentary Below Surface, which eloquently portrays the power of community, exercise, and compassion in a YMCA Aquafit Class. Stay for an insightful panel discussion addressing themes like the fight against ageism, the representation of aging in media, and the potential of media to positively alter perspectives on aging.

Our event, Breaking Age Barriers: Leveraging Media for Inclusivity, aspires to inspire change in societal attitudes towards aging. It emphasizes the potential of media to cultivate a society that cherishes individuals of all ages.
