Profile

Gwanwyn is a month-long national festival held across Wales in May each year celebrating creativity in older age. The festival began in 2007 and is supported by Arts Council of Wales and Welsh Government.

Gwanwyn, which means spring in Welsh, celebrates older age as a time of opportunity for renewal, growth and creativity. Our aim is to offer opportunities for greater participation by older people in the arts, whether visual arts, drama, storytelling, music, literature, photography, dance or film.

Our sister project, cARTrefu, is an Age Cymru programme to improve:

The quality and accessibility of arts experiences for older people in residential care.
The confidence and skills of care staff to increase creative activity in care homes.
Opportunities for professional development of artists and to provide a platform to showcase residents and artists work to the wider public.
