The Art of Ageing is an initiative under the NSW Ageing Strategy 2016-2020. It celebrates the rich and diverse lives of older people living in NSW. Holding the exhibition is an effective way to challenge negative perceptions of ageing and older people.
The exhibition will travel to 21 locations to July 2019, and comprises the work of five photographers from Wagga Wagga, Taree, Molong, Mudgee, and Goulburn. Each photograph is accompanied by a short story highlighting the subject’s experiences and reflections on ageing.
The exhibition will tour to at least 12 locations around NSW, following its official opening in March 2018 at NSW Parliament House, where it will be on display from 7 – 28 March.
You are encouraged to challenge your views on older people by visiting the 2018 Art of Ageing Exhibition.
A learner driver, gymnast and ukulele player are among the extraordinary older people who feature in the 2018 exhibition, which celebrates the lives of older people living in regional NSW.
The NSW Government commissioned this exhibition to highlight the incredible lives of seniors and promote inclusive communities for all generations.
