Nottingham Writers’ Studio has become a Get Creative Champion. Get Creative is a major celebration of the nation’s arts, culture and creativity. Led by BBC ARTS and What Next? in collaboration with a huge range of arts, cultural and voluntary organisations, everyone is invited to get involved and share their creative talents.
The campaign aims to highlight the central role that creativity plays in people’s lives, to celebrate the millions of people who are already doing something creative and encourage others to take part.
The campaign kicked off on 19 February 2015 with a series of talks and events – from a graffiti event in Cardiff and an upcycle demo in Belfast to a huge Paint by Numbers scene in Cumbria – and it will culminate with a finale weekend in early February 2016 showcasing the creativity of the nation and reflections on the year.
Nottingham Writers’ Studio and its members have an opportunity to be a part of this celebration. What will you do to get involved? Let’s Get Creative!
