Get Creative Festival shines a light on all the great cultural activity that takes place right across the UK on a regular basis and encourages people to try their hand at something new and creative. The annual festival is a merger of the previous Get Creative Weekend and Voluntary Arts Festival – now joined together to make one huge nationwide event.
Get Creative Festival is brought to you by arts and creative organisations and individuals across the UK and is supported by 64 Million Artists, Arts Council England, Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Arts Council of Wales, the BBC, Crafts Council, Creative People and Places, Creative Scotland, Family Arts Campaign, Fun Palaces, Voluntary Arts, and What Next?
From Saturday 11th – Sunday 19th May 2019 hundreds of organisations and community groups will be putting on events to help you get creative – and they’re free or have just a small fee to cover costs. We had over 1,400 events across the UK during our 2018 festival and we’re excited about growing the numbers in 2019 to celebrate and showcase creativity in every community.
