SILVER ARTS – CELEBRATING SENIORS AND THE ARTS
Silver Arts is a
month-long festival showcasing the meaningful possibilities seniors have in and
through the arts in everyday lives. It highlights the significance of arts
engagement as people age, and opens conversations on creative ageing - how the
arts foster creativity and social engagement towards enhancing the well-being
of seniors and the people around them, through imagination and shared experiences. The
festival also demonstrates the role of the arts in forging a sense of identity,
self-worth and belonging as individuals have access to choices, knowledge and
connection to community across generations, cultural backgrounds, and
abilities. The festival offers opportunities for seniors to share their stories
that shape collective memories and forge stronger inter-generational
SILVER ARTS 2020
The well-loved annual Silver Arts returns for its 9th edition, and will be presenting its full programming online for the very first time to ensure the safety and well-being of our seniors during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
This year, Silver Arts 2020 will take place over two weeks from 1 to 13 September on the Silver Arts Facebook page. Seniors can look forward to a total of 15 daily programmes, with a diverse and engaging line-up of activities in English, Mandarin, Malay, Tamil and Chinese dialects, all of which can be enjoyed from the comfort and safety of one's home independently and with family members.
