ARC’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of older individuals by contributing to the understanding of the aging process from a biomedical, and psychological and sociological perspective in relation to life-long social and physical contexts. ARC conducts research and education and spreads research findings within and outside the scientific community.

Focus on Aging in a unique Arts & Science project
We approached the Stockholm School of Photography at Folkuniversitetet to gauge their interest in a collaborative project with the purpose of producing representative photographs of older people based on the research conducted at ARC. The idea received a positive response and resulted in 20 photography students producing 15 images each of older people in Sweden. Read more about the project.
