What’s happening with Luminate: Scotland’s creative ageing festival?

Applications to take part in Luminate: Scotland’s creative ageing festival, have been flooding in ahead of last week’s deadline and given the wonderful variety of projects and ideas that have been put forward, we’re really looking forward to announcing programme details on Wednesday 25th July.

Luminate is a brand new festival which will take place across Scotland this October. Featuring events and activities celebrating and profiling our creative lives as we age, Luminate is part of a nationwide drive to increase the number of older people enjoying high quality arts activities – whether as artists, performers, participants or consumers.

There’s already an exciting range of creative work with and for older people taking place across Scotland and the festival looks to celebrate and build on this through new commissions, collaborations, and international projects alongside a wide range of independently-run projects, including work led by community groups, artists and cultural organisations.

Luminate will feature a wide range of projects aimed at older people as participants and audience members; activities that bring the generations together, work by older professional artists, creative activities with people being cared for in residential homes and in their local community, and work which explores themes based upon the nature of our creative lives as we age.

    • Hi David,

      The closing date for arts contributors to this year’s Luminate has unfortunately passed. However we’re anticipating that next year’s festival will be bigger and better. Can I suggest that you sign up to the Luminate e-bulletin on http://www.luminatescotland.org/ as this is the best way of keeping up to date with the Festival.

      Best regards
      Doug
