Coming of Age – exhibition of artworks aims to boost research into ageing at Swansea

A unique collection of art works on the theme of ageing, including photographs, prints and installations, is on display across the University campus and Singleton hospital from the start of May until 21 June.

The exhibition is part of the Coming of Age project, which is led by the Older People and Ageing Research and Development Network (OPAN Cymru), based at Swansea University.  The exhibition has involved partnership with ABMU Health Board and Swansea Metropolitan University via their Arts in Health Co-ordinator. 

The project aims to encourage researchers and clinicians from across disciplines to come up with ideas for research projects that relate to ageing.  

The artworks have been produced by artists from across the UK and are on display at various locations across the campus and Singleton Hospital.
