Our community is changing. We are getting older and living longer. By 2031, one in three people in NSW will be aged 50 or over. The exhibition turns clichéd perceptions of older people on its head through the strong images and stories of these capable and diverse older people. In depicting the diversity of older people in NSW, the Art of Ageing challenges out-dated perceptions of ageing, and celebrates the contribution older people make to our communities. It reminds us that older people are not all the same. Our experiences of ageing are unique.
The 2020 Art of Ageing exhibition is a photographic display featuring older people in regional NSW. The exhibition comprises 24 images taken by talented photographers from regional NSW. Each photograph is accompanied by a short story highlighting the subject’s experiences and reflections on ageing. The photographic panels are available in two formats. Prints in the traditional set (Exhibition Package A) measure 130cm x 86cm. The hinged concertina panels (Exhibition Package B) comprise of 6 double-sided panels and 1 introduction panel (600mm x 1800mm) each.
The Art of Ageing is an initiative under the NSW Ageing Strategy 2016-2020. It is funded by the NSW Government Department of Family and Community Services. See Art of Ageing exhibition for more information.
