Get Creative Champion's Terms and Conditions

What is Get Creative?

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. The founding organisations are: BBC, What Next?, Fun Palaces, Voluntary Arts, Crafts Council, Family Arts Campaign, 64 Million Artists, Creative Scotland, Arts Council Wales, Creative People and Places.

4. Becoming a Get Creative Champion is a way of directing the public to opportunities to get creative.
