The aim of this project is to explore and communicate positive experiences of ageing in the community. The Face of Ageing project is about how we value and take pride in who we are as we age, what we have achieved, and our aspirations for the future.

Our goal is to challenge stereotypes of ageing and the ageing process and recognise the diversity of experiences as we age.

COTA Queensland Community Ambassadors are volunteers who are passionate about the rights, needs and interests of older people in the community. For this project, the Ambassadors are using iPads to take photographs and create short audio clips and videos that convey the everyday “Face of Ageing” in their local communities.

These photographs, videos and narrations will be part of a public exhibition later in 2017.  Stay tuned for more details!

This is a collaborative project between Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and COTA Queensland.
