ART OF AGEING 2020-2021

We invite expressions of interest from NSW galleries, art spaces, libraries and appropriate venues to host a new exhibition titled Art of Ageing 2020.

The photographs and narratives were commissioned by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services and comprises of works by outstanding regional NSW photographers who have captured images of senior Australians who defy the stereotypes of ageing.

The exhibition turns clichéd perceptions of older people on its head through the strong images and stories of these capable and diverse older people. This 2020 exhibition follows the very successful Art of Ageing Exhibition 2018 which has toured to over 25 venues in NSW over the past 2 years.

The opportunity is open to businesses, government, non-government and community organisations in NSW.
