FaceAge is a remarkably human space in which participants explore issues of identity, gender, sexuality, and ethnicity through the lens of aging. FaceAge challenges age-related stereotypes and triggers self-reflection around deeply personal perceptions.
The award-winning FaceAge video program weaves together interconnected chapters in which young adults (18-22) and aging individuals (65+) reflect on life while studying and describing one another’s faces. This series of intimate interactions challenges perceptions, forsters introspection, and builds acceptance, awareness, and cross-generational connections. The experience is immersive and the impact, transformative.
