GMS Art Exhibit: Growing Older, Growing Stronger 2/6

GMS Art Exhibit: Growing Older, Growing Stronger

Wednesday, February 6, 2013, 4:00pm-6:00pm, Division of Graduate Medical Sciences, L-317, 72 East Concord Street, Boston, MA 02118

Adults with intellectual disabilities (ID) are living longer than ever before, but aging and elderly women with ID face significant health disparities and other challenges. This population can sometimes be invisible. Growing Older, Growing Stronger is a photography exhibit featuring the work of aging women with ID. It was produced using Photo Voice, a participatory research technique where participants become co-researchers in the project and are given cameras and asked to document their worlds. This exhibit of co-researcher photography explores themes of community inclusion, belonging, relationships, loss and joy, as documented by the artist co-researchers. This project is part of GMS’s Medical Anthropology and Cross-Cultural Practice master’s student Nechama Greenwood’s thesis work researching aging with ID. Co-researcher artists will be on hand to answer questions and light refreshments will be served.
