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

Welcome to Luminate

Luminate will be back this October, bringing older people and people from across the generations together across Scotland to celebrate creativity, share stories and explore what ageing means to all of us.

Be part of Luminate 2015

We are now accepting submissions to be part of Luminate 2015, so if you, your group or your organisation are planning arts activities or events in Scotland this October that are aimed at older people, or that have a theme related to ageing, now's the time to put them forward using our online proposal form.

Previous festivals have included performances, exhibitions and activities in care settings; plays, poetry and film screenings that tell stories of ageing; performances of works presented by older artists; and special offers or deals for older people to enjoy and take part in creative activities. For more inspiration, why not browse events from the 2014 programme or download a copy of the 2014 printed brochure?

To keep in touch throughout the year, and to receive news about our 2015 programme, sign up to receive our e-newsletter in the box on the right, or follow us on social media.
