Living like an Artist
In the Western context, there is an underlying assumption that artists live for their art and never retire. This assumption, however, needs to be taken with a grain of salt. The project Living like an Artist explores what creative practice means for ageing artists and how their identities as artists are negotiated, questioned and challenged in later life.
