‘The Culture of Ageing’ is about how societies deal with an ageing population, and what role seniors have in various societies. The exhibition project delves into the Maltese context, while relating it to other cultures through an approach based on various angles and perspectives.

Yet the project is not simply about ageing and seniors. Seniors are themselves fundamentally involved in the shaping and ongoing formation of the project, through past interviews,  an educational programme wherein Maltese and Dutch seniors exchange post-cards, a film and lecture programme, and exhibition tours provided for senior citizens and by senior citizens.
