An Exhibition about the Art of Aging
Dialogue with Time is an interactive exhibition, the first of its kind in the world that deals with aging from an original perspective. The groundbreaking exhibition allows visitors a glimpse into the world of the elderly. Through experiential play, using latest technology, a creative intergenerational dialogue is produced dispelling stereotypes and clichés of old age. The guides of this exhibition are aged 70 and above. They are the mediators and experts in all facets of aging and act as role models.
