About the festival


This autumn the London Borough of Lewisham is to play host to a brand new cultural festival centred around the subject of ageing and creative approaches to the issue of growing old.


The festival is supported by a Cultural Impact Award made to the London Borough of Lewisham as part of the Mayor of London's Borough of Culture programme.


With nearly seventy different events ranging from live music, theatre, dance, film and exhibitions, discussions, pop-up choirs and large scale outdoor performances, almost all of which are free to attend or "Pay-What-Makes-You-Happy", Age Against the Machine Festival of Creative Ageing has at its heart a mission to open up the subject of ageing in our society.


The festival is packed with events aiming to challenge perceptions and attitudes towards ageing, celebrate older people as artists and highlight the ways in which creativity can help us age well and make a radical impact on quality of life.


The series of symposiums, talks and workshops will explore ways the arts can contribute to current debate and practice in care for older people.


The festival as a whole addresses a subject and section of society that is often invisible in the public eye.


Produced by south east London's arts centre, the Albany and participatory arts company Entelechy Arts.
