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.
See the Voluntary Arts Week 2014 Storify for more details, photographs and to get inspired for next year’s celebrations – dates coming soon!
