Get Creative local networks & events

Get Creative Champions have told us they would like our help to develop local Get Creative networks, putting individuals and groups in contact with other creative and community organisations near to them and, importantly, with their local BBC. We will be starting (for now!) in Bristol, Liverpool, Nottingham, York and Scotland by hosting events to try and test out how these networks could operate effectively.

These initial meetings will be opportunities to hear more about what Get Creative has planned for 2017, to network with each other and make connections, and to connect with a key contact from the BBC in your area.

Friday 18 November, 10:30-12:30: GLASGOW

Thursday 1 December, 10:30-12:30: YORK

Monday 5 December, 11:00-13:00: BRISTOL

Get Creative is a campaign run by a group of cultural organisations to celebrate and support the everyday creativity happening in homes and public spaces. From guerrilla gardening in your street to paint by numbers in your local library, via nail art, yarn bombing and singing in a choir we’re building an actively creative UK 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 event and to encourage people to share their own examples of everyday creativity. The campaign works with Get Creative Champions to create participatory events that are accessible for everyone and to develop local networks that create new collaborations and relationships.
