The Age of Creativity Festival celebrates the extraordinary range of Age-Friendly creative and cultural work taking place across England and reaches out into our community to help more people get involved. This is our chance to develop new audiences and connect with people who have significant barriers to taking part because we know the positive impact creativity could have on their lives is tremendous. So get involved! Add your events to our festival programme or generate new opportunities for older people to get creative and help us bring more culture into the lives of older people.
The theme for the 2019 Age of Creativity Festival is Intergenerational Work because we know the immeasurable value of bringing together communities and generations. However, the festival still exists to celebrate older people as audiences, participants, volunteers and artists. We want to showcase an eclectic mix of tastes, styles, art-forms and interests that are Age-Friendly, and provide the consideration and support that enables older people to produce, create and enjoy creativity up and down the country.
