Ageless in Singapore aims to promote the social movement of agelessness and intergenerational bonding through the main festival theme of ‘Eat.Play.Share.’

There will be a festival of arts, food and storytelling targetted at Singaporeans from all walks of life from 1st – 15th September.

A Conference which will gather thought leaders and leading practitioners and organisations from Singapore, Asia and the world to share age-friendly best practices and inspire follow-up action will be organised on 6th – 7th September.

Ageless in Singapore is proud to be associated with our Festival partners Goodman Arts Centre, PA Active Ageing Council and National Book Development Council Singapore as we celebrate and promote the idea of “agelessness” with inter-generational groups coming together to eat, play and share.

The festival includes:

  • Conference: Towards an Age-Friendly World on 6th – 7th September brings together businesses, policy makers and not-for-profit organisations to share trends, best practices and ideas to build an ‘ageless society’ in Singapore. The agenda will focus on key topics such as innovation for the silver industry, wellness, transportation and mobility, volunteerism, technology, and design for an ageing society.
  • Eat: A family food legacy cooking competition organised by PA Active Ageing Council which encourages the younger generation to team up with older relatives to cook a favourite family dish. The final will be held on 15th September.
  • Play: Arts for all Ages, where the Open House at Goodman Arts Centre supports inter-generational bonding and welcomes people of all ages to partake in over 150 arts programmes by 200 artists over the weekend of 1st – 2nd September.
  • Share: In partnership with the National Book Development Council, a Cantonese heritage storytelling session on the 5th September featuring Madam Lee Swee Har, celebrating the legacy of the legendary 1960’s storyteller late Lee Dai Sor.

Ageless in Singapore is organised by Integrative CSR Consulting Pte Ltd, with partners including PA Active Ageing Council, SIM University, Goodman Arts Centre and National Book Development Council of Singapore, and with support from PAssion Card, STORM, Agelessonline and McCann Worldgroup Singapore.
