More about this campaign
The Honoring Elders Project came about in progression after two other projects by Kara Counard. The first, called the 101 Women Project, featured 101 women in the community where they felt at home. And the Women Over 90 Project featured 33 subjects from the ages of 89 to 100 from throughout Wisconsin. A group of 5th grade girls was involved with that project, and their photos and stories of elders were included alongside Kara's in an art show at the ARTgarage in 2012. This led to the Honoring Elders Project. The project is on its third year of bridging that gap between generations, through storytelling and photography.
Your help is needed to purchase a dedicated set of cameras for the project.
