Get Creative Outdoors – until late September 2021

Taking part in creative activity and reconnecting with nature can be hugely beneficial for our wellbeing. This summer, Get Creative are inviting people across the UK to do both. Get Creative Outdoors is a campaign and festival that invites people to try their hand at something creative in the open air.

Are you organising a creative event or activity? As long as it takes place outside, gives people the chance to try something creative, is free or low cost, and occurs over the summer months, your event or activity can be part of Get Creative Outdoors.
