Get Creative Festival 2018 - Registration now open
Get Creative Festival is a national celebration of everything creative, taking place across the UK from 17 – 25 March 2018. The annual festival is a merger of the previous Get Creative Weekend and Voluntary Arts Festival – now joined together to make one huge nationwide event.
Get Creative Festival shines a light on all the great cultural activity that takes place right across the UK on a regular basis and encourages people to try their hand at something new and creative. During the festival arts organisations, libraries, societies and community groups are invited to put on participatory creative events that are either free or cost-recovery. The festival is supported by a range of major cultural organisations, including Voluntary Arts and the BBC, but the programme of activities is mostly run by grassroots groups and arts organisations of all shapes and sizes throughout the country.
Why should you get involved?
- Grow your audience / group –. Toolkits and resources will be available to help you make the most of the opportunities the Festival presents.
- Recognition and connect to local BBC – The BBC will be shouting loudly about Get Creative during the Festival and will feature some events on its programmes and online pages.
- Celebrate your achievements – Taking part in Get Creative Festival is a chance to come together and celebrate all that you’ve achieved.
- Feel part of something bigger – Knowing that you’re part of a nationwide event celebrating creative activity reminds us all that we’re part of something bigger.
There is a Get Creative Festival 2018 toolkit to help organisations promote their event to as wide an audience as possible. There are easy to use templates for posters and press releases as well as logos available to download.
