Get Creative: a year-long celebration of British arts, culture and creativity

Get Creative is a BBC initiative that celebrates world-class arts, culture and creativity that happens every day across the UK - and they want you to get involved.

Over the course of a year we’ll shine a spotlight on the creativity that surrounds us everywhere in venues of all shapes and sizes: from village hall to the concert hall, and of course at home.

From digital art to fine art, from design to ballet, from poetry to hip-hop, Get Creative celebrates all forms of art. Let's be honest, sometimes the arts can seem intimidating. But don't be put off if you don't know a Degas from a Damien Hirst.

To help you get creative we've put together handy guides on the major art forms, to get you inspired to pick up a paint brush, a pen or a piccolo - whether you want to nurture a creative skill or learn a new one.

There are ideas on activities to take part in as a group or to try out at home - then head over to our Champions page to find out what's happening near you.
