As part of The Centenarian Portrait Project By Teenagers.

100 is an art exhibition profiling Melbourne's centenarians through portraits created by skilled young artists.This project is about bringing generations together outside the typical family unit, celebrating elders from the community and creating a fun platform for inter-generational exchange. For the teenage artists, it is an opportunity to meet a centenarian often for the first time & create a portrait. For the centenarians, it is a chance to share history. For both generations, it offers a memorable experience exchanging perspectives.

Each Centenarian is partnered with a teenage artist from the local area. Over several visits, the centenarian and teenage artist share time together, drinking tea and getting to know each another. Sketches and reference photos are created and a portrait is made. This delightful process offers hope, joy and inspiration. 100 has engaged 200 participants from 70 Melbourne suburbs, 63 Secondary Schools and 87 Nursing Homes. All portraits will be gifted to the centenarians and their families at the close of the exhibition.

100 is an Embraced Inc project, created in association with Arcare Aged Care and The Victorian Seniors Festival.
