ABOUT "BE VINTAGE"
Be Vintage is a series of advertisements for a fitness plan based on interviews with octogenarians living in First Hill. The interviewees were asked about advice for younger generations concerning exercise, diet, and love. The advertisements consist of seven outdoor banners on light poles, two large horizontal banners, a trifold brochure, and this website (http://bevintage.org) containing the interviews and volunteer opportunities with seniors in the neighborhood. The goal of the project is to raise awareness of the complex culture and life experiences embodied in the First Hill community, to encourage people to have more conversations with elders, and to provide points of contact for potential volunteers to get involved with senior services and retirement centers.
From August to October 2014, advertisements will be displayed at all the following locations:
- 1. Light pole banners at the Washington State Convention Center Plaza
- 2. Bench advertisements in Freeway Park
- 3. Trifold brochures at cafes, museums, and hospitals in and around First Hill, Seattle.
