Still Life? Pensioners’ Photography in Scotland
2005-ongoing

In this National Galleries of Scotland outreach project, we sought to inspire older people from around Scotland to look at our art collection and create their own works of art in response.

The initiative was a partnership with the Scottish Pensioners’ Forum and Glasgow Caledonian University (GCAL). It was funded by the Rayne Foundation.

The project has been evaluated as an important success by researchers in the School of Social Sciences at GCAL, who praised it for giving elderly communities a creative means of addressing society at large.
