Voluntary Arts: #GetCreativeAtHome - How You Can Get Involved!

Get Creative is a campaign that shines a light on all the great cultural activity that takes place on a regular basis in local communities and encourages people to try their hand at something new and creative. Each May, we have held a huge annual celebration of creativity through a festival that aims to give everyone the chance to get actively involved in a creative event in their local area.

This year is a little different, as you’re no doubt aware! Instead of promoting local creative events where people come together, we are using the #GetCreativeAtHome campaign to highlight and promote some of the amazing participatory creative activities that are being developed to help people to express themselves creatively during a time of unprecedented change. At this extremely challenging time, we believe that the power of creativity to unite people and support them to maintain good mental health and connection with others is more important than ever.

We are encouraging organisations and individuals that create, curate or signpost great accessible online activities, whether they are live online events where participants need to log in or join at a certain time or content that you can take part in anytime, for example how-to videos online, to list these for free here - https://getcreativeuk.com/

You can also 'Get Creative At Home' by https://getcreativeuk.com/activities where there are already over 200 free or low-cost activities that you can follow online (most of which you do in the physical world whislt following either pdfs you download or by watching how-to video).  There are activities suitable for all ages and for all levels of skill!

You can read our statement on how and why we shifted our focus in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
