BBC Wales Gets Creative

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

From 17-25 March 2018 BBC Wales, Arts Council of Wales and other partners are teaming up again for a festival 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. It’s your chance to do something, make something and get creative.

What's happening?

From painting to pottery, dancing and drawing, knitting to needlework; arts organisations, community groups and societies of all shapes and sizes are offering taster workshops and classes so everyone can get creative.

Get your event on the map

If you’re an organisation who would like to take part in the festival, whether it’s your usual activity or something specially planned, let us know what you’re up to. Do you run a creative group or society? We’d love you to get involved.

  • Plan a free or cost recovery event between 17-25 March.
  • Upload the details to Get Creative’s interactive listings map.
