Celebrating the Lives of Older People

Contact Malca direct for prices of original artwork by emailing malca@schotten.co.uk

The I’m Not Dead Yet exhibition of drawings, film and online content, is available for loan to agencies, charities, community groups, colleges and schools. There is no charge, although each organisation or venue may need to pay for transporting the artwork from and back to its base in central Norwich.

These striking portraits of older people living in Norfolk – complemented by film and web based material – challenge negative stereotypes about older members of the community and emphasise their contributions to modern society.

In October 2013 the larger than life drawings (each one measures 2m x 1.2m) were displayed inside The Forum, Norwich, and at other venues including at Norwich Cathedral, Norwich Theatre Royal and the N & N Hospital.

Interviews with the sitters, recorded by young filmmakers working with BBC Voices, were shown in The Forum’s Fusion gallery and the sitters’ stories were also published online.

“‘The number of people interested in borrowing the free I’m Not Dead Yet Touring exhibition exceeded expectations. In each instance the artwork, easels and marketing material, including a film about the development of the artwork and the sitters’ life stories, were provided free of charge by The Forum Trust. The range of venues ensured that the artwork was seen by a diverse audience, many of whom would not originally seek out an art exhibition or be able to travel to see such an exhibition.'”
