Make some noise!

As we get closer to May, we are finalising plans for PR in the weeks leading up to the festival. We're looking out for exciting events all across the UK to highlight in key press releases and other promotion during April. If you want to be part of this and gain exposure ahead of the festival, get your events listed before 7 April.

Hundreds of events have already been listed on our map for May. Will you be joining in and sharing the joy of creativity for this year's #GetCreativeFestival between 11-19 May 2019? List your events on our interactive map now. It's easy to register on the website (using your email or Google profile) and fill in the details of your events. You can also come back and edit these later if anything changes.

With over 1,400 events spread across the UK last year, we are aiming for even more opportunities to get creative during this year's festival, to make this an unmissable celebration of creativity.

Micro Grants

Micro Grants - Wales

Apply for a micro-grant to help your group run a Get Creative Festival event in Wales

If your group is based in Wales, and you are planning to run an event during Get Creative Festival, there is funding available to help out! The Arts Council of Wales has provided funds for Voluntary Arts Wales to administer micro-grants of £100 to help groups with the costs of running events during Get Creative Festival, such as materials, publicity or venue hire.

This is a competitive fund with only a limited amount of awards possible, so we encourage groups to apply as soon as possible. Application form and guidance below. [Cymraeg]

Looking for Ideas?

We have met lots of individuals, organisations and venues who have been inspired by events in previous years which brought together lots of local activities under one banner. Find out more about these models below or download our festival toolkit for more tips.
Planning Toolkit

A hub can be any venue that hosts a range of activities in one place. This can be in an existing venue like a local museum, arts centre, library or community hall or it could be a shopping centre or park or anywhere else people can gather.

Clusters are a way of branding many activities within a locality as a mini-festival. Lots of towns, villages and other areas are bursting with creativity - a Get Creative cluster is an opportunity to bring it all together under one banner and share promotion in May!

Spread the Word

The strength of the Get Creative Festival is the scale and spread of the events. If you're already planning to take part, tell others in your area and see if they could also organise an event. Keep us up to date with your plans by using the hashtag #GetCreativeFestival on social media too.
