Staging an event as part of the Voluntary Arts Festival is a great way to:

Grow your group – If you’re looking to attract new members, the Voluntary Arts Festival is the perfect opportunity to profile your group and get more people involved in your activities.

Raise your profile – The extra exposure brought about by the Voluntary Arts Festival can help raise your group’s profile in the local media, potentially boosting participant and audience numbers.

Celebrate your achievements – Groups work hard all year round, both behind the scenes and in front, taking part in the Voluntary Arts Festival is a chance to come together and celebrate all that you’ve achieved.

Feel part of something bigger – Knowing that you’re part of a nationwide event celebrating community-led, creative cultural activity reminds us all that we’re part of something bigger. A warm feeling inside is distinctly possible.

Help boost the voluntary arts nationwide – The more groups and individuals who take part in the Voluntary Arts Festival, the bigger message we can send to local and national decision-makers about the importance of community-led, creative cultural activity. So let’s make it a big one!
