Applications Open For Luminate 2019 Festival
Following six rewarding and successful annual events from 2012 to 2017, Luminate's nationwide festival is now biennial, and plans are now underway for the festival's return in May 2019. The programme will take place across the length and breadth of Scotland from Wednesday 1 to Friday 31 May.
The format will remain the same and we would like to invite groups, organisations and artists to put forward their own activities and events for inclusion in the 2019 festival programme. These need to be aimed at older people or have a theme related to ageing. The process is now open with a deadline for applications on Monday 28 January 2019.
For further information and to apply: www.luminatescotland.org/luminate-proposal, or telephone 0131 668 8066 for a hard copy application form.
The reason the festival is now taking place every two years is to allow Luminate to run a year-round programme of activities and creative ageing work, which has proved fruitful, industrious and worthwhile; allowing older people to connect with Luminate outside the festival format.
Anne Gallacher, Director of Luminate said: "We are very excited about the return of the festival in May and look forward to receiving a wide range of proposals and to working with old friends and colleagues as well as new ones. We are also grateful that our programme is made possible by Creative Scotland's Regular Funding, and by the continued support of Age Scotland, the Baring Foundation and Baillie Gifford."
