What's on for NSW Seniors Festival 2017
THIS year the theme of the 2017 Seniors Festival (formerly NSW Seniors Week) is 'inclusive communities'.
Seniors Week is all about welcoming you to fresh experiences; now's the time to put your thoughts into action and feel the excitement of a new discovery.
The value and meaning of the Senior's Week theme, 'inclusive communities', lies in realising its opposite, which is, isolation and exclusion. Inclusive communities promote choice, support and of course, inclusion.
In particular at this time of year, the government supports these options through investment in social infrastructure and social capital, in this case much of the support is channelled through to local, grassroots groups who take the opportunity to extend and share their knowledge, entertainment and friendship during the 2017 Seniors Festival period.
The numerous and diverse range of events held during the ten day NSW Seniors Festival , between March 3 and 12, is an initiative to bring all seniors together to embrace and celebrate this marvellous age.
Besides, providing some great entertainment, it is hoped various events reflect some of the Festival Week's message which are to: empower us to stay connected and contribute to our communities; empower us people to live active and healthy lives with improved physical and mental wellbeing; bring together local community organisations to produce multicultural, intergenerational or lifestyle events for senior community member; harness opportunities for seniors to continue to participate in activities outside the festival and encourage opportunities for seniors to continue to learn.
