Be part of Luminate 2014

Luminate goes from strength to strength following the outstanding success of the second festival in 2013. Plans are now underway to ensure that this year’s festival will again embrace the length and breadth of Scotland with an even more wide-ranging programme than last year.

The festival showcases projects and events run by communities and arts organisations nationwide - including theatre, dance, music, visual arts and community projects – and offers a chance to celebrate creativity, share stories, and to explore what ageing means to all of us.

Luminate includes an independently run programme from artists, cultural organisations and community groups, and the festival is now inviting submissions for this programme during Luminate 2014.

In 2013 Luminate included 400 arts activities with, by and for older people, stretching from the Scottish Borders to Shetland. Events ranged from projects bringing younger and older people together, to activities in care homes, exhibitions and theatre productions for audiences of all ages to workshops aimed at older people.

October 2014 will once again see a lively and diverse nationwide programme offering a wealth of creative experiences that prove that creativity has no age, and you are invited to put an event forward to be a part of it.

The closing date for proposals is Friday 27 June 2014 and it is easy to apply visit and fill in the online form. Guidance notes are also available online and you can request hard copies of this information by phone on 0131 668 8066.
