Mid North Coast Creative Ageing Festival 2020 

Back for its fourth year, the Mid North Coast Creative Ageing Festival takes place across the region from February 10 to 28. Presented by Arts Mid North Coast during NSW Seniors Week, the Festival is an innovative annual event promoting the importance of engaging in the arts and creative activities to foster good health and wellbeing in ageing.

Inspired by the creative ageing festivals in Ireland, Wales, and Scotland, the Mid North Coast Creative Ageing Festival offers opportunities for older people to participate in the arts whether through exhibitions, performances, film screenings, dance, workshops, discussion groups, networking and sharing of experiences and information.

So if you are a senior, celebrate ageing creatively - and enjoy the events and activities taking place across our creative coast!
