The A-C-M network is an international interdisciplinary collaboration that brings together academics, artists, community-based activists, organizations and industry partners. Its goal is to inquire into the intersections between communication, media, ageing and the concept of mobilities in light of the demographic shift to an “ageing society” and the current discourses on ‘active aging’.
