Is there more to who you really are than you think?
As we share our stories and ask our questions we discover that from our diversity and culture, experiences, gifts and abilities, we each have a unique blend of wisdom. Weaving this wisdom together, we create a rich and expansive environment. In this Silver space, through our golden years, and challenging current convention, we redefine what it means to be a woman over 50, and rewrite the myth of the older woman.
We let go of who we thought we were and step in to the truth of who we truly are – wise elder women, valid and valuable, with wisdom worth sharing, whether that’s with our grandchildren, our local community or on a world stage.
Our Vision & Mission
And what if we truly are a vast untapped resource of wisdom and understanding?
What if we have arrived here at the most perfect time and that, by weaving our wisdom together, we have an opportunity to create significant impact and transformation?
Imagine engaging with a community which believes all this.
This is the Silver Tent.

‘We don’t need to be activists to transform humanity
We only need be ourselves… truly ourselves
Not the selves we’ve been taught to be
Not the selves the media tells us to be
But our wild, wonderful and wise elder selves’
