The Arts and Ageing Forum returns as a hybrid event, that is part of the #SilverArts initiative, to bring artists, social and healthcare practitioners, community leaders and funders together to network, share best practices and advocate for the social value of the arts for seniors. Since the first edition in 2014, each edition explores different themes where participants discuss perspectives and strengthen networks with other stakeholders across sectors, to explore how the arts can empower, engage and enrich seniors.

The ninth edition this year will take an exploratory journey into “The Future of Arts and Ageing in Singapore”. Join us as we hear from international creative ageing experts Lifetime Arts (USA), as well as local industry leaders, and participate in experiential workshops targeted at artists and social service practitioners.
