About the exhibition

Our community is changing. We are getting older. We are living longer than ever before. By 2031, one in three people in NSW will be aged 50 or over. But older people aren’t all the same. Like the rest of the community, they live diverse lives. How they experience ageing, and how they want to age is unique.

The Art of Ageing exhibition is a photographic display featuring older people in NSW as the subjects of art. Each photograph is accompanied by a story from the photographed participants highlighting their experiences and reflections on ageing. The photographs and stories celebrate the value, experience and contribution older people bring, and challenge out-dated perceptions of ageing.

The Art of Ageing 2020 exhibition follows on from the success of the previous two Art of Ageing exhibitions. The feedback received from the attendees confirms that the exhibition challenges negative perceptions of ageing and older people, while inspiring a positive vision of ageing.

We are looking for partners to tour the exhibition in NSW throughout 2020 -2021.
