How to Help an NGO tell the story of a universal and often unseen aspect of aging to an international audience.
Introduction to United Nations Conference for the International Day of Older Persons.
Planetree Conference, Denver
Annie presented her work that asked the question of people age 67 and over: “How Old Would You Be If You Didn’t Know How Old You Were?”
The work was designed to tell the story of how people feel inside while at the looking at them from the outside. The purpose was to challenge viewers and participants’ conceptions of age and allow them to connect to an inner sense of age. A number that they connected more to inner qualities experienced at a particular time in their life that have remained with them. Designed to neither dismiss nor downplay the value of or reality of aging, but also to include a universal experience of carrying many age experiences with us.
