CADR and BSG Creative Ageing Competition
BSG are partnering with CADR on their creative ageing competition.
This is open to older adults and those that work with them or conduct research with them. Previous competitions have been hugely successful, last year’s winning entries have toured Wales via the National Museums, and are being exhibited in Scotland in the near future. 
The competition has also generated interest internationally. 
This year’s competition will lead to a devolved nations event later in the year around creative ageing as part of my BSG portfolio.
