100: A celebration of
 Sydney’s  oldest residents
The Centenarian Portrait Project by Teenagers

An opportunity to create an artwork with great meaning.

"So beautiful to see these wise elders captured with such tenderness."

"An amazing experience. I'm inspired learning about the incredible stories of these people through the magic of art!"

Sydney rendition of community arts program TCPPBT united 100 100-year-olds with 100 teenage artists across 60 suburbs of Sydney in 2018. Each pair was supported to get to know one another over a number of months and culminated in an exhibition of 100 portraits of Sydney's 100-year-olds. Artists undertook a unique artistic and social journey with their centenarian sitter, learning history first hand, developing empathy and reflecting on vastly different times. The artists gifted their final portrait to their centenarian subject to conclude the initiative, however many friendships continue to this day.
