Society is battling negative stereotyping about the inevitable ageing process.
In Australia’s first heritage city we have over 5,000 people over the age of 55, it’s time we embrace our collective knowledge.
The Art of Ageing exhibition showcases photographs and stories from a selection of older regional NSW residents thriving through life’s experiences and the wisdom they’ve gathered over the years.

This celebratory exhibition of the value, experience and contribution of older people is brought to us through the Art of Ageing initiative under the NSW Ageing Strategy 2016-2020 to encourage positive ageing and to challenge ageism.
We are showcasing the digital exhibition during the NSW Seniors Festival 13-24 February 2019
