Voluntary Arts: Get Creative & Make a Difference!

Since the start of the national pandemic lockdowns, #GetCreativeAtHome has encouraged people all across the UK to find a creative activity to enjoy during a difficult and unusual period, and we are extremely grateful to all those who have supported this effort.

Voluntary Arts recognises that as the pandemic has continued to affect people’s lives over such a long time, the crucial issue we now face is supporting those at risk of experiencing high levels of loneliness or isolation.

Our new Get Creative & Make a Difference campaign prioritises profiling those creative activities that have social connectedness at their heart. While it isn’t possible to come together physically to enjoy creative activities at the moment, we feel it is vital to offer means of connecting, sharing and creating with other people wherever possible.

We are now accepting suitable activity listings and we are particularly keen to receive submissions that have a clear approach to connecting participants with one another in a way that is safe, compliant with government guidelines and, above all, creative and enjoyable.

Please do submit your listings now and let us know how you are helping to keep people connected.

You can also, keep an eye on BBC Arts’ Get Creative page for new inspirational content and take a look at our Masterclasses on iPlayer.
