What is it?

On the weekend of 7-9 April 2017 the BBC Wales, Arts Council of Wales, Voluntary Arts Wales and What Next? Invite you to celebrate the arts and creativity in every corner of Wales.

We would like to offer the Welsh public an unprecedented opportunity to take part in a creative activity, so that all over the nation everyone has an opportunity to know the power of being creative.

We are asking all the publicly funded arts and creative organisations of Wales as well as anybody else who would like to join it to open their doors to provide free creative experiences across the weekend.  BBC Wales will back the campaign and support the message of Get Creative with heavy promotion in the run up to the weekend as well as radio and online coverage during the weekend itself.

Although creativity and the arts are around us 365 days of the year, they rarely dominate the media, and even those who are actively creative don’t fully realise the value of what they are doing. Our purpose is to make an impact, demonstrate the value of creativity to everyone, and create a national conversation around arts, creativity and culture.
