Voluntary Arts Week
12 – 20 May

This week-long event celebrates the UK’s love of amateur arts and crafts. Activities will be taking place across both the UK and Republic of Ireland. If you want to get involved with the activities taking place, keep an eye on their website, where they will soon be announcing all of the events taking place – national and local.

If you’re keen to get even more involved, you may consider running your own event. You can submit your ideas to info@voluntaryartsweek.org. If you need a venue for your event 3Space has free vacant shop spaces throughout the UK. It is available to registered charities, non-profit, voluntary groups or social enterprises for temporary hire for events.

Voluntary Arts Week have also launched the ‘What’s in your window?‘ campaign, encouraging participants to show off their stuff with a window display. Perhaps drama teachers and facilitators can be a bit more creative and devise a short performance to display in their windows. You can create displays in local community in locations such as libraries or community centres, or in your own window at home!
