The exhibition theme is to celebrate our elders and help shift our views on ageing and age-related barriers that prevent community participation. This exhibition aims to promote positive perceptions of ageing and challenge people to rethink stereotypes. It also provides opportunities for communities to share their stories and embrace changed attitudes towards ageing.

The exhibition also features a local story project of shared stories. This project brings together community members to gather and capture their stories. This public program will also include reflections of family members as they share their views of their elders.

The Elders touring exhibition is presented by Scenic Rim Regional Council and funded by the Queensland Government's Advancing Queensland: Age-Friendly Community Grants Program Round 2 and delivered by Council as part of the Age-Friendly Scenic Rim: Active, Healthy and Creative Communities project.
