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 2015 will take place from 15 -24 May (too much creativity for just 7 days) and we would love you to join us!
