Bealtaine 2009 - Creative Connections

Bealtaine 2009 - Creative Connections

Following the success of last year’s event, HSE Health Promotion Service Kildare/West Wicklow in partnership with Kildare County Council Arts Service will again host 'Creative Connections' a celebration of artistic work by older people from Kildare and West Wicklow on Thursday 7 May 2009 in Kerdiffstown House, Naas.

Creative Connections will be launched by the Mayor of County Kildare, Councillor Senan Griffin and will showcase and celebrate the creativity of older people attending groups and day care centres and residing in long stay facilities. This event is being held to mark Bealtaine, the national month-long festival celebrating creativity in older age. It takes place each may and involves thousands of participants in every art form. Bealtaine is coordinated by Age & Opportunity – the national organisation working to promote greater participation by older people in society.
