Luminate: Scotland's creative ageing festival
celebrating creativity as we age

Welcome to Luminate

Luminate takes place across Scotland throughout October, and spotlights arts activities by and for older people, as well as events for audiences across the generations.  The 400 events in the 2013 festival - from the Scottish Borders to Shetland - offered a wealth of enjoyable and exciting creative experiences that proved that creativity has no age!  Plans are now well underway for Luminate 2014, and we look forward to announcing our programme over the coming months.

Later this spring we will once again invite groups and organisations to put forward your own events and activities for inclusion in the Luminate brochure.  Make sure you have signed up to receive our e-news or that you are following us on social media to receive information on this as soon as it's available.

STOP PRESS: if you are planning to put forward activities as part of Luminate 2014, we are delighted to offer two Dementia Awareness Training days provided by Alzheimer Scotland.  These days will take place in Glasgow on 13th May and in Edinburgh on 19th May, and they are free for groups or organisations who are planning Luminate events.  Places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, and you will find the application form on our Resources page.
