Get Creative Festival 2020 - Call Out & Briefing/Networking Event

Would you like to celebrate your creative group and encourage new people to join? Then get involved in this year's Get Creative Festival from 9-17 May 2020! There are many different ways to take part - you could open up your usual weekly sewing club, life drawing group, rehearsal or stage a special event, or if you run a venue you could host 'come and try' taster sessions run by local arts groups and clubs.

Get Creative is a national campaign and festival run by a group of cultural organisations and is supported by the BBC, to celebrate and support the everyday creativity happening in homes and public spaces in every community. From outdoor photography to music workshops in your local library, via pottery, yarn bombing and performing on stage, we’re building an actively creative society that caters for everyone of every age, background and ability.

Get Creative aims to inspire people to try something new at home or at a Get Creative Festival event and to encourage people to share their own examples of everyday creativity. The annual festival sees community groups, cultural venues and individual creative citizens all host participatory events that are accessible for everyone.

By arts group or creative group we mean any number of people who meet regularly to do something creative just for the fun of it, for example sewing, taking photographs, drawing, knitting, singing, dancing, take part in amateur dramatics, and play as part of a band or orchestra, etc.

Get Creative Festival 2020

From 9 - 17 May 2020, the Get Creative Festival will see people coming together to be creative at thousands of events. Building on the success of recent years, we want to see this massive celebration of creativity reach every local community.
