The Art of Ageing

Exhibition dates: 30 November - 13 January 2019

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. However, from war veterans to proud L-platers, sports enthusiasts, artists and refugees, older people are anything but clichéd. 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 2018 Art of Ageing exhibition is a photographic display featuring older people in regional NSW. The exhibition comprises thirty images taken by five talented photographers from regional NSW.

The Art of Ageing is an initiative under the NSW Ageing Strategy 2016 - 2020. It was curated by Art Pharmacy Consulting and funded by the NSW Government Department of Family and Community Services.
