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

On 1-3 April 2016 BBC Wales, Arts Council of 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.

Find out what events, activities and taster sessions are happening in your area across the weekend using our interactive map.

What's happening?

Arts organisations, community groups and societies of all shapes and sizes are offering activities, giving you a chance to get creative. It could involve making music, dance, film or photography. Creating with words, paint or digitally. Maybe just generally getting crafty! See what events are happening near you across the weekend.

On Friday 1 April, BBC Wales will be at Galeri in Caernarfon, North Wales for a free event to kick start the weekend with live broadcasts from BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru. See the huge range of activities on offer. (link to event page)

We would love to hear what you are doing to across the weekend, so celebrate and share your own creativity with us using #BBCGetCreative
