Abstract:

This evaluation assesses the contribution of the Bealtaine festival to promoting the participation of older people in the arts in Ireland, and to improving the health and wellbeing of the people who participate.

It also recommends a national policy for older people and the arts with
the aim of realising the considerable potential for health and social gain associated
with creative activities and events with and for older people.
