Get creative from 6-15 May 2016 . . .
Voluntary Arts Week is an annual celebration of creative participation that takes place across the UK and Republic of Ireland each May. The events that that make up the festival programme are run by creative community groups and organisations of all shapes and sizes, giving you the chance to find out how to ‘get creative’ on your doorstep and discover the joy of taking part.
Put a creative date in your diary! Check out our events page in the run up to May to find a creative event near you. You can also connect with Voluntary Arts Week on Facebook and Twitter for event updates.
Part of a creative group or organisation? Be part of the action – share what you’re working on and reach out to new people by listing your regular meet up that falls during Voluntary Arts Week and making it welcoming to new people, or by putting on a showcase event or ‘come and try’ workshop.
Taking part is a great way to:
- Engage more people in your activities
- Raise your group’s profile
- Benefit from some additional publicity
- Help boost awareness of the voluntary arts nationwide
- Have fun and be part of something bigger
