Get Creative Weekend: 7 – 9 April 2017

A weekend to try something, make something - Get Creative!

On 7-9 April 2017 BBC Cymru Wales, Arts Council of Wales, Voluntary Arts Wales and What Next? are teaming up for a bumper weekend to celebrate the nation’s creativity – and we’re inviting you to join in.

We’re shining a light on Wales as a place where we take part in arts and culture and love to get creative.

Tell us about your arts events

We’re asking arts organisations, community groups and societies of all shapes and sizes to invite others to take part in a creative experience for free. It could involve making music, dance, film or photography; creating with words, paint or digitally or just generally getting crafty!

Whether it’s your usual activity or something specially planned, let us know what you’re up to on the Get Creative website - your event will appear on an online map so that the public can see what’s on and where.

Free Training Sessions

If you’re planning to organise an event this year as part of Get Creative, you can join one of Voluntary Arts Wales’ training days in Neath, Caernarfon or Carmarthen. This free course will provide you with practical guidance about organising events which are inclusive and engaging. More information is available here.
