Silver Arts advocates the meaningful possibilities seniors have in the arts. Organised by the National Arts Council since 2012, Silver Arts is an annual festival dedicated to celebrating seniors and creative ageing. The festival presents collaborations between artists, arts organisations and community partners to foster the arts into the lifestyles of seniors. From performances to workshops, seniors can showcase their creative talents through co-created content or learn a new skill, enhancing their overall well-being. The festival offers opportunities for seniors to share their stories that shape our collective memories, and forge stronger inter-generational understanding.

SILVER ARTS 2020/21 OPEN CALL
The National Arts Council is inviting proposals from artists and arts organisations to develop and present arts experiences that are senior-centric and support the notion of creative ageing. The proposals could take on a variety of artistic medium (e.g. literary art, performing arts, visual arts, photography and film) as well as modes of engagement ranging from innovative presentations to analogue/digital participatory projects that involve participants as co-creators. Proposals will be considered for Silver Arts 2020 (3-27 September) and 2021 (2-26 September).
