The Arts Council recognises the important and valuable contribution made by older people in the arts as artists, audience members, critics, arts workers and board members. It also recognises that many older people did not have access to the arts in their younger years and that they face additional barriers to participation as a result. The Arts Council is also committed to assisting artists of all ages to make work of excellence, including those who centre their practice specifically in the area of arts and older people.
