Join us for this months oral history of Northern Tasmania: The importance of being kind with Adam Page

Adam Page came to live in Launceston in 2010. Adam’s community contribution emerges through his passion for story-telling, music performances and finding his vocation in aged care.

Humans of Launceston is a Facebook group (with 36,000 followers) where Adam posts the life stories of elderly people he has engaged in conversation. The stories are a celebration of the ordinary person, a tribute to human resilience. They are a treasure trove of Launceston history. 

The group began when Adam started talking to a lonely man on a park bench, heard his story and felt inspired to record it.

Adam has had many occupations in his working life including truck driving, railways and construction but it was Humans of Launceston that  led him to aged care because of his love of spending time with the elderly.

Music and performing are also a large part of Adam’s life and he does approximately a hundred gigs a year. He does the Adam Page Rock and Roll show as a soloist and plays everything from ACDC to Kenny Rogers. He’s also an Elvis tribute artist.

Presented with the support of the QVMAG and the City of Launceston.
