Age Alive photography exhibit
June 8 - September 1, 2014
from the Saskatoon Council on Aging (SCOA)
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.
