Bealtaine is co-ordinated by Age & Opportunity, the Irish national organisation working to promote greater participation by older people in society. May belongs to the Bealtaine festival, celebrating creativity as we age! Over 120,000 people now take part in Bealtaine. From dance to cinema, painting to theatre, Bealtaine showcases the talents and creativity of both first-time and professional older artists. The theme for the 2013 festival is ‘Grow Happy’ – a call to celebrate growth, spring and positivity for ourselves and our communities.
Exhibition runs until June 30th
