​Sing-along and appeals without age.

Generation – a festival on ageing is a free one-day festival for a more ageing-friendly society and is being held for the first time during this year's Bergen International Festival.

Between discussions and workshops, the festival about ageing makes its way to the Festival square, where you can hear generation appeals, sing along with a generation choir led by conductor Håkon Matti Skrede, and protest and celebrate in a pro-ageing procession. 

Among the speakers are both young and old contributors, as well as Festival director Lars Petter Hagen.

Generation – a festival on ageing is a broad and interdisciplinary collaboration, initiated by GC Rieber Foundations and festival director Anna Helle-Valle. Read more at
