A FESTIVAL OF IDEAS INNOVATION INSPIRATION & IMAGINATION
The Mid North Coast Creative Ageing Festival is an innovative annual event which acknowledges the valuable role that seniors play in our community and highlights the importance of engaging in the arts and creative activities to foster good health and wellbeing as people age. The Festival has been inspired by the creative ageing festivals in Ireland, Wales, and Scotland as well as the longstanding New South Wales Seniors Festival
The Festival offers opportunities for older people to participate in the arts through exhibitions, performances, film screenings, dance, workshops, discussion groups, networking and sharing of experiences and information.
We hope as many people get out and enjoy the Festival taking place across the region from rural and small communities to towns and our major centres and cultural attractions.
