Voluntary Arts works to promote and increase active participation in creative cultural activities across the UK and Republic of Ireland. We work with everyone who gets creative purely for the love of it. We also work with anyone who helps facilitate creative participation, those who fund it, provide spaces for it to happen, and the people who work alongside communities to support them in their creative endeavours. Voluntary Arts was established in 1991 to support and represent the amateur and voluntary creativity taking place in all of our communities. It runs the annual Epic Awards to recognise outstanding achievements in the field and is a key stakeholder in the Get Creative campaign.
