ARMAS In English


ARMAS is a nation-wide festival that celebrates creativity in older age.

This year ARMAS is 1.–14.10.2022

ARMAS will be organized for the 6th time this year. There are over 200 events all around Finland.

ARMAS is an umbrella organization that honors creativity in older age and brings together artists, art organizations, art institutions, care sector and municipal level organizations all over Finland. ARMAS has an unique repertory that showcases aging artists and makes themes of old age visible using art as a medium.

The three missions of ARMAS are:

  • SENIOR POWER – own voice of the elderly
  • TAKE DOWN THE WALLS – no boundaries
  • JOY TO EVERYDAY LIFE – happy and energetic festival

ARMAS is inspired by the international creative aging festivals, like Bealtaine in Ireland, Luminate in Scotland and Gwanwyn In Wales.
