On Tuesday, October 24, 2017, the Columbia Aging Center celebrates the participants in its digital narrative project “Exceeding Expectations” (exceedingexpectations.nyc).
Since its start, 20 people in their 80s have shared their remarkably different lives with Ruth Finkelstein and Dorian Block’s team through words, photos and video. On Tuesday, Oct. 24, they will meet each other for the first time in New York, and we will reveal what we’ve learned.
To read the stories and see videos, visit the project’s website: exceedingexpectations.nyc.

On the last day of 2020, the 300th story milestone was accomplished and published on Wij & corona (translated into Us & corona). On this Dutch story platform experiences of older people during these trying corona times are shared. With this we give the voice of seniors a stage and support and inspire each other! For example, Willem (71) tells how he tries to stay fit at home and Maarten (77), who is a heart patient and must be extra careful.
