Flourishing on the Fleurieu Festival 2018 - Celebrating Active Ageing Week 23-29 September 2018

It’s time to start planning for the Flourishing on the Fleurieu Festival once again. This popular Festival, which is held every two years, celebrates retirement and showcases how our community flourishes. It aims to promote health and wellbeing, and facilitate social connection. This year the Festival promises an exciting new program where communities across the Fleurieu region will come alive. The emphasis is on ‘exploring possibilities’ for getting involved in your local community.

The Festival will be hosted during Active Ageing Week from 23 to 29 September 2018. Community groups and organisations based in Alexandrina, Victor Harbor, Yankalilla and Kangaroo Island council areas are being invited to take part in the Festival by hosting an event or activity in their local community that aims to encourage new people to get involved. 
This year’s Flourishing on the Fleurieu Festival encourages community groups to think about the valuable contribution they make and how they can reach out to people who may be experiencing loneliness within their community.
It is an opportunity to showcase your community group and promote what you have to offer older people. So put your thinking caps on and decide how you can actively engage new people to participate in your group. Promotional material and templates will be available to groups to assist with promoting Festival events and activities. A Program featuring the events and activities being hosted during the Festival week will be available from each of the local council offices leading up to the Festival.
A grant amount of $150 is available to small community based groups to help fund an event or activity to encourage new people to get involved. Events and activities will need to be held during the Festival period, which is Active Ageing Week, 23 -29 September 2018.
