FaceAge Installation Serves as the Anchor Event for Diversity and Inclusion Programs

The College of Health and Human Services will host a series of events that focus on furthering our collective understanding of issues related to diversity and inclusion. The main event will be FaceAge, an award-winning video program in which young adults (18-22) and aging individuals (65+) reflect on life while studying and describing one another’s faces.  

The FaceAge experience meets audiences through an immersive three-screen video environment that reveals a multi-dimensional view of aging. FaceAge challenges perceptions, fosters introspection, and builds acceptance, awareness and cross-generational connections. For more information about FaceAge, explore http://www.faceage.org/

FaceAge will be on display from October 13 – 26 on the second-floor lobby of McNeill Hall. To learn more about the variety of associated events to be held during this two-week period, click here (PDF).
