New grants towards a sustainable creative ageing sector in Scotland

New grants have been awarded to Luminate, Creative Scotland and the Life Changes Trust.

As Andrew Eaton-Lewis’ review of the Scottish creative ageing scene revealed last year, there is a wide range of projects happening across Scotland at the moment.

As well as identifying examples of good practice, the report emphasises the importance of considering how work of high artistic quality can be sustained and supported in the longer term.

In June, the Foundation made three new grants to support activity in Scotland with a particular focus on the longer term future of the creative ageing sector.

Luminate was one of the Foundation’s first national partnerships. The Foundation has awarded match funding with Creative Scotland for a project by Luminate and the Scottish Care Inspectorate for a joint training programme for artists and care staff across Scotland.

The Foundation has also awarded Luminate core funding to support its ambition to become the creative ageing national development agency for Scotland.

And thirdly, we have granted match funding to a joint project with the Life Changes Trust for a Dementia Inclusive Singing Network in Scotland.
