Each May, the Voluntary Arts Festival (formerly Voluntary Arts Week) shines a light on the wide range of community led cultural activity that takes place across the UK and Republic of Ireland – raising the profile of local groups and connecting more people with opportunities to ‘get creative’ on their doorstep.


This Briefing provides an introduction to the Voluntary Arts Festival and the benefits of taking part, plus - lots of useful links to event toolkits and inspirational case studies from groups and participants that have taken part in previous years.
