Also, be sure to stop by the Reflection Lounges — places to relax and talk about your festival experiences and share what the age-friendly movement means to you. Based on each lounge’s name, there will also be specialists in that subject matter to speak with or volunteers that can guide you to a specific exhibit to get questions answered. Celebrating the age-friendly concept of Domains of Livability — important community features that impact well-being as we age — reflection lounges named “Health & Well-Being,” “Housing,” “Transportation,” and “Work & Play” will be located in Robarts Arena, while the “Community Engagement” reflection lounge will be located in the Potter Building.
