Sukey Parnell Speaks at the Welcome Collection

Aging Matters

Sukey Parnell has been invited speak at the Wellcome Collection on 11th February on the representation of ageing. The event is at 7:00-8:30pm.

What would have seemed very old 100 years ago is clearly not regarded the same way today. How have our perceptions of older people changed and how do we compare with other cultures and societies? We will look at visual representations of older people in the arts and media and also discuss whether our perceptions of older men and women vary.


Stephen Burke, Chief Executive, Counsel and Care
Chris Phillipson, Professor of Applied Social Studies and Social Gerontology, University of Keele
Sukey Parnell, photographer

This event is free.
Booking will open on Thursday 21 January 2010 at 14.00.
