EVENTS: NSW SENIORS FESTIVAL 2017

10 Mar 2017 - 11 Mar 2017 | 10.00am - 5.00pm

Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre in conjunction with NSW Seniors Festival present two days of innovative entertainment and activities in conjunction with The Paramor Prize: Art + Innovation exhibition.

iRecall presents an engaging program of food, film, music and performances combining generations, innovation and art in conjunction with The Paramor Prize exhibition. iRecall includes a unique crossover of cultural activities as both local seniors and members of CPAC Youth collaborate both prior to and during this weekend events.

Talking Portraits is an oral history project presented as a series of short films screened prior to theatre and film events. Presented by intergenerational pairings, the presenters inventively tell each other’s reflective stories.

Living Portraits is a series of live digital drawings by artists of the iRecall audience created and projected in the Turbine hall over the weekend. There will also be demonstration and information sessions of digital technology especially for seniors.

With support from the Liverpool City Council, there will also be two FREE film screenings, presented with the Sydney Film Festival: Iris at 11am on 10 March and Toni Erdmann at 11am on 11 March.
