Survey for Creative Community Champions

Voluntary Arts is offering support to creative group co-ordinators with FREE resources, peer-to-peer support, guidance and exciting opportunities.

As the pandemic lockdown begins to ease, we're providing support to Creative Community Champions across England as they start to think about running their activities in person once again. If you lead, organise or provide a venue for creative cultural activities that take place regularly in social groups then get in touch via this short contact form. 

At Voluntary Arts, we celebrate, encourage and champion people expressing themselves creatively in their everyday lives - and practising their creativity socially with other people. We plan to run this connection campaign annually so that we can make contact with, and support, new and existing Creative Community Champions!

Our aim is to promote and increase active participation in creative cultural activities across England. This encompasses everything from traditional amateur arts and crafts (singing, drama, dancing, quilting, painting, photography, writing, etc) to digital arts, street art, creative cookery and gardening - from knitting a jumper to playing the guitar, making a short film to arranging flowers, from self-governed constituted amateur groups to informal get-togethers and individual everyday creativity - from the 'serious amateur' to the occasional participant. 

Feel free to follow the latest updates on this campaign through the #CreativeChampions hashtag via social media.
