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.
The only cost to you will be to organise the transport of the artwork from and back to The Forum, 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.
The Forum is run by a charitable trust – The Forum Trust – which worked closely with the artist, Malca Schotten, BBC Voices, Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library, Age UK Norfolk and others to create I’m Not Dead Yet.
Everyone involved is keen that as many people as possible, from all age groups and sections of the community, are given the opportunity to engage with the exhibition in 2014 and beyond.
In October 2013 the larger than life drawings were displayed inside The Forum, Norwich, and at other venues including Norwich Cathedral, Norwich Theatre Royal and the N & N Hospital.

Interviews with the sitters, recorded by young filmmakers working with BBC Voices, were shown on The Forum’s Fusion Screen and have been published on The Forum’s You Tube channel.
