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

Welcome to Luminate

Luminate, Scotland's creative ageing organisation, runs a diverse programme of creative events and activities throughout the year.

The Luminate Festival is back from 1–31 May 2019 and we'd love you to take part! If you are planning arts activities aimed at older people, or that have a theme related to ageing, we would like to invite you to submit a proposal to be part of this nationwide festival that brings together older people and those from across the generations to celebrate our creativity as we age, share stories of ageing and explore what growing older means to all of us.

The deadline for proposals is 28 January 2019. Click here for more information and guidance about the process of submitting a proposal and to complete the online application form.

What's on 

Unforgotten Forces

We are currently working on a 3 year artist-in-residency in partnership with Erskine care homes. This project is part of Unforgotten Forces, a partnership  of 15 leading organisations providing a range of services for older veterans living in Scotland. 

We commissioned two artists Gill White and James Winnett who are spending two days each week in care homes collaborating with Erskine residents. Creative activities have included filmmaking, sound recording, storytelling, creative writing, poetry reading, model making, sculpture, stone carving, painting and drawing.
