SILVER ARTS – CELEBRATING SENIORS AND THE ARTS
Silver Arts is a
month-long festival showcasing the meaningful possibilities seniors have in and
through the arts in everyday lives. It highlights the significance of arts
engagement as people age, and opens conversations on creative ageing - how the
arts foster creativity and social engagement towards enhancing the well-being
of seniors and the people around them, through imagination and shared experiences. The
festival also demonstrates the role of the arts in forging a sense of identity,
self-worth and belonging as individuals have access to choices, knowledge and
connection to community across generations, cultural backgrounds, and
abilities. The festival offers opportunities for seniors to share their stories
that shape collective memories and forge stronger inter-generational
