The Golden Age of Late Bloomers – Salon with Anna Gát
March 29, 2021 at 8:00 pm BST
Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected
We are gathering to celebrate late bloomers – all those who started late in love, their career, as writers… Come join us!
In our crazy-fast-paced 21st century we live in, we like to lament that all of culture caters to the young: TikTok is teeming with teenagers, pop stars are under the legal drinking age, and fashion forgets about the shape of real adulthood.
We’re sold a myriad of products every day that promise a preservation of tightness and lushness – caressing the worries over skin and hair – and all we can do is try and keep up.
In this Salon we will challenge these commonly held assumptions. We will point out that until quite recently people did in fact do things at a young age: got married, had babies, went to war, died. We will look at the astonishing, unprecedented longevity of the contemporary human, and the many things that are becoming acceptable to do at a later age: graduate from university, get a stable job, buy property, have children.
We will talk about the fact that we might live in a golden age of Late Bloomers, and what this means for our culture, our careers, our love affairs.
We hope you can join us!
