Brighten up your community and help celebrate Voluntary Arts Week with an explosion of colour and creativity from 6 – 15 May 2016!
Over the past three years, high streets, school yards, public gardens and museums across the country have been decorated with a host of creative CraftBombs to celebrate the first day of Voluntary Arts Week. Those involved have had tremendous fun, been featured in both local and national press and met new people along the way.
Download the CraftBomb toolkit for inspiration, ideas and practical advice to help you create your own Craftbomb for Voluntary Arts Week 2016.
