Gwanwyn is a month-long national festival held across Wales in May each year celebrating creativity in older age.
Gwanwyn means spring in Welsh, and 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 Gwanwyn Festival 2020 Community Grants has now closed.
We also have special projects like cARTrefu and In Your Mind’s Eye, which promote the participation of older people in the arts throughout the year.
