Victorian Seniors Festival

VSF_2021_combined_lrg.jpg

The Victorian Seniors Festival theme for 2021 'keep’n on' recognises the resilience of senior Victorians.

Sadly, live events planned for the Melbourne CBD have been cancelled due to ongoing lockdowns and public health concerns. But while we may not be able to get together in person, we can still come together online to share experiences and be inspired. The organisers have planned a diverse festival of online events and performances.

From September to December, there will be more than 60 online performances from remarkable Victorian and Australian performers, creators and makers. Through music and dance performances, radio plays, curated conversations and comedy, the festival will celebrate and share Victoria’s diverse community.

Take a look at the program of events on the Victorian Seniors Festival website and check regularly for updates and additions. Some local councils are still planning live events, while others have an online program.

Creative Workshops for Seniors

We will create a small artwork each week, using pencils, pastels and collage. This also an opportunity to meet new people and enjoy a friendly chat with others.
