Join our summer of creativity outdoors

Get Creative Outdoors 2021

Taking part in creative activity and reconnecting with nature can be hugely beneficial for our wellbeing. This summer we’re inviting people across the UK to do both.

Get Creative Outdoors is a campaign and festival that invites people to try their hand at something creative in the open air. Get Creative is supported by the BBC and a dynamic group of cultural and environmental organisations from across the UK.
