An Exhibition for the Ages

Generation Gap

An intergenerational exhibition created by Renmark Primary School students will remain open and free of charge at the Chaffey Theatre throughout the school holidays and until the end of August.

The Spinback exhibition, celebrates and showcases the unlikely friendships of 25 Renmark Primary students and residents of the Renmark Paringa Hospital Aged Care unit, through photos, posters, videos and soundtracks.

The project helped the students learn about dementia and aided in breaking down the stigma and fear attached to elderly illness.
