Older Adults Art Exhibition 2018

Engaging with Ageing - Past, Present and Future

Calling all Older Adult Artists in Banyule

In October 2018, Banyule Council will celebrate the contribution of older adult artists from our community with an art exhibition, ‘Engaging with Ageing – Past, Present, and Future’.

If you are an older adult (aged 55 or over) who is a resident of Banyule, we invite you to submit your artworks for this exhibition. 
The exhibition will showcase the talents and perspective of older adults in our community, and will be part of Banyule’s Seniors Month celebrations for 2018.

ALL ARTFORMS WELCOME - painting, drawing, printmaking, textile, sculpture, ceramics, tapestry, video, photography, and everything else that Art encompasses. 
Simply address the theme in your statement, telling us how you as an older person express yourself through your artform, or tell us a about how you have developed your skills - has age provided you with different perspective, opportunity or skills that you didn't previously have access to? 

Applications open: early June to 19 August 2018

(Up to two entries per person, separate entry forms must be completed for each artwork)

If you're not a visual artist, there are opportunities for writers and the performing arts during this exhibition period as well!
