Luminate Festival celebrates our lives as we age and so far it is the only festival engaging seniors in creative arts. Since its launch in 2012 it had tremendous success in collaborations and international projects specially planned for the festival.

Luminate is trying to shine a light on the importance of creative activities to the well-being of our seniors, by involving them into a wide range of events, hosted by a wide range of cultural and community organizations. In addition to the public programme, Luminate includes Outreach activities which take the festival to care homes, sheltered housing communities and local groups across the country.

Through the month of October the festival is running dance, drama, music and visual arts performances. A series of creative workshops will also be taking place during this month in different communities across Scotland.

Luminate director Anne Gallacher said: “I am delighted that the growth of activities in care settings as well as dementia friendly events means that Luminate is becoming increasingly accessible each year. Creativity has no age, and once again this October Luminate shows the breadth of opportunities that are available nationwide.”
