A Celebration of Creative Proportions!

Voluntary Arts Week is an annual celebration of cultural creativity across the UK & Republic of Ireland. The event is promoted by Voluntary Arts but is run by the arts & crafts groups and individuals who take part in cultural activities all year long.

 

Voluntary Arts Week 2014 took place from 9 – 18 May and saw over 200 creative events listed on the Voluntary Arts Week website and advertised locally in communities across the country.

 

During the week, voluntary-led arts and craft groups, cultural organisations and creative individuals showcased their work and invited more people to join them through a series of exhibitions, performances, open rehearsals, drop-in workshops and by taking their creative activity into the streets as part of the Voluntary Arts Week Flashmob and CraftBomb.
