LATA 65 – Young at Art, the worlds leading street art project for seniors lands in Aberdeen. Over 65? Sign up now !
As part of this years festival we team up with Portuguese curator Lara Seixo Rodrigues to present a series of workshops aimed at the over 65’s. Lara is the founder of the world renowned LATA 65 project. A unique groundbreaking street art project for seniors that has been emulated the world over.
Lara is also the curator for Wool Street Art Festival, a Portugese street art festival established in 2011 and a long time friend of the Nuart Family.
Inspired by Lara’s LATA65 project, Nuart have been running a seniors program for several years now, the project has been hugely popular. Like Lara, we noticed the audience for Street Art was much broader than was being publicised, we noticed a lot of pensioners were joining street art tours and attending openings and wondered if Lara’s project and philosophy would transcend borders, and of course it did. We’ve since had participants aged between 80 and 100 years join the workshops and in 2018 toured the regions old peoples homes.
