Get Creative

Get Creative is a campaign run by a group of cultural organisations to celebrate and support the everyday creativity happening in homes and public spaces. From guerrilla gardening in your street to paint by numbers in your local library, via nail art, yarn bombing and singing in a choir we’re building an actively creative UK that caters for everyone of every age, background and ability.

Get Creative aims to inspire people to try something new at home or at a Get Creative event and to encourage people to share their own examples of everyday creativity. The campaign works with Get Creative Champions to create participatory events that are accessible for everyone and to develop local networks that create new collaborations and relationships.

Get Creative Festival

Get Creative Festival

From 17 - 25 March 2018, the Get Creative Festival will see people coming together to be creative in their local community. Building on the success of this year's Get Creative Weekend and our own Voluntary Arts Festival in recent years, the new Get Creative Festival will be a merger of these two major events. Voluntary Arts will be working with an increased range of partners to promote this call to action and demonstrate the range of incredible creative activities that can and do take place across the country on a regular basis.

Visit the new Get Creative Festival website to add your event to the map and access free toolkits and templates to help promote your event.

Get Creative Weekend took place from 7 - 9 April 2017 with over 650 events taking place across the UK. You can catch up on all the highlights of the weekend on the BBC Arts website.
