(I am working on this project as a researcher and videographer… please submit artworks if you are interested!)
The Agewell Chataqua Project invites you to create and submit small-scale artwork that is an expression of your thoughts and feelings on aging: what it means to you; how that meaning is shaped and influenced by your external environment and society; how you are impacted by it, your hopes, worries, and struggles with it; and how the inevitability of it shapes your decisions and actions.
Creative expressions can be in a wide range of media, including paintings, graphics designs, textile art, installations (which can be interactive), photography, poetry, narrative, and performance work in music, theatre and dance. This invitation is open to everyone, and all are encouraged to submit.
