Generation Arts engages older people across West Lothian in non-competitive, expressive and creative activities that promote independence, confidence and good mental and physical health. We reach hundreds of people every year through our range of activities, which include arts groups, choirs, taster sessions, dance and intergenerational projects. Read our most recent newsletter here.

Throughout the year we run a broad programme of activities in the community and in care settings for people in West Lothian aged over 50+. Click on our Programme page for details of activities near you and holiday dates and our News page for photographs and poetry from recent events. View a short film documenting our work here.

We coordinate activity in local arts venues, as well as community centres, day care, residential care homes and other places at the heart of West Lothian’s many communities. Our partners are West Lothian Council Community Arts, Age Scotland, West Lothian Council Social Policy, West Lothian 50+ Network, Ageing Well, Care Activity Network and Health in Later Life group. We all work with older people and recognise that by pulling together and sharing information we can have a greater holistic beneficial effect to create healthier happier communities.
