An exhibition of photographs celebrating older women

Until 9 July 2017 (historic exhibition)


This exhibition is part of a larger project on older women in society and celebrates their diversity, vitality and energy, providing an important corrective to the routine stereotypes of older women which we see paraded in popular media. Each of the women who feature have a fascinating story to tell and you can find and listen to those stories here.

The project has been led by Newcastle University.
