To celebrate Seniors Festival 2019, Lithgow Library is hosting a senior’s art competition with great prizes to be awarded!

The 2019 Seniors Festival will be from Wednesday 13 – Sunday 24 February. Every year the NSW Seniors Festival encourages seniors to be active, social and healthy. The festival provides seniors with the opportunity to get involved in their communities and enjoy all the benefits that come from that participation.

As part of Lithgow’s Seniors Festival 2019, Lithgow Library is inviting seniors to submit an artwork for our inaugural art competition.  Any medium may be used, participants must be aged 50+ and all artworks must be delivered to the Library by Tuesday 29 January 2019 to be considered. All artworks will be displayed in the Library for the month of February. Great prizes will be awarded to the winners as decided by the judges.

“The Seniors Festival is a great way to encourage participation in the community and community events,” said Mayor Ray Thompson, “I encourage all dabblers to get the brushes out and show us what you can do.”

The theme for the competition is “The Art of Aging”. Show us what it feels like being a senior. For more information please contact Lithgow Library on 6352 9100 or lithgow.library@lithgow.nsw.gov.au.
