August 4 - November 14, 2014
The WDM will be marking the outbreak of the First World War with four showcase exhibits – initially, one at each of our four Museums. We hope visitors will pause and read the interesting Saskatchewan-based stories they have to tell. Later in 2014, the four showcases will be combined into one exhibit that will travel throughout the WDM system over the next few years.

The AGE ALIVE PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBIT was put together from entries to a
photo competition and is a project of the Saskatoon Council on Aging (SCOA),
developed with the support of the Government of Canada's New Horizons for
Seniors Program and in keeping with SCOA'S Vision: Positive Aging for All.
The SCOA is a non-profit, community based organization dedicated to promoting the dignity, health and independence of older adults through programs, services, advocacy, and education. It is operated by staff and a board of volunteers, the majority of who are older adults.
AGE ALIVE promotes positive aging for all by combating ageism. To raise
awareness and challenge perceptions of ageism, the Age Alive Photography
Exhibit illustrates the contributions of older adults and aims to dispel the
stereotypes and myths about aging.
AGE ALIVE powerfully highlights realistic and positive views of older adults as dedicated volunteers, competent and experienced workers, enthusiastic learners (or teachers), members of boards and committees, family role models and individuals who are physically active and engaged in living life to the fullest.
