Get Involved


Creative Age Edmonton is establishing an organizational structure that will enable it to present, facilitate and collaborate with artists and organizations to enhance the availability and quality of arts opportunities for older adults in Edmonton and area throughout the year.

 

As well, CAE expects to continue planning and presenting a festival to promote the value for older adults of engaging in the arts, showcase the abilities and accomplishments of local senior artists and performers as an inspiration for others to emulate, and encourage artists and the arts community to work with seniors on improving their skills to the highest level they hope to achieve.

 

The information below provides an overview of some of the ways you may be able to get involved. Please note that the Creative Age Festival is on hiatus in 2016.


Organizing committee member

 

The festival coordinator may form sub-committees to help with organization of the festival. These have, in previous years, included signature event, arts café, financial/sponsorship, publicity and communications, and volunteer committees.

Presenter

 

If you have a great idea for a festival event and access to a venue in which to present it, get in touch. We may be able to help publicize your event as a valued contribution to the festival.

Performer

 

FEST and more features older adult (age 55+) performers. Group members do not all need to fall into that age category but at least 60 per cent should fit the criterion. Thank you for your interest, but there is no call for performers at this time.

Audience member

 

We couldn’t have a festival without your support so we certainly appreciate your interest in finding out about festival events. 

Recreation and Wellness Directory for Older Adults

 

The Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council publishes a Recreation and Wellness Directory for Older Adults on an annual basis. It provides contact information for numerous arts-related and other programs in Edmonton.
