Exhibit: The Wisdom Photo Project
July 1 - August 31
The Wisdom Photo Project will commemorate Canada’s 150th anniversary through the narrated photo stories of its aging individuals with the aim of exploring discourses around aging and to encourage intergenerational engagement. The project will highlight Canada’s momentum over the last 150 years with respect to supporting successful aging through a photo display of seniors from across Canada and their perspectives on what it means to age positively in Canada.
The Wisdom exhibition will take place at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work Art Wall (246 Bloor Street West, Third Floor) beginning July 1st, 2017 to coincide with Canada’s 150th anniversary. It will feature 50 photographs of older adults narrated by their words on aging in Canada. Visitors will be encouraged to leave their own words of wisdom for future generations. Following the exhibit, the photos will be hosted at the Hart House Talking Wall (7 Hart House Circle) throughout Fall 2017 and archived online.
