Get Creative 2019

Get involved, Get Creative this May 2019!

Get Creative Festival is an annual campaign to celebrate and support the everyday creativity happening in homes and public spaces. From guerrilla gardening in your street to paint by numbers in your local library, via nail art, yarnbombing and singing in a choir, Get Creative Festival is building actively creative communities that cater for everyone of every age, background and ability.

Get Creative Festival will take place from 11 - 19 May 2019 when we’ll be celebrating creativity across the UK and Republic of Ireland with a whole range of amazing events!

Ards Arts Centre is calling all creatives in the Borough who would like to share a little of their creative talent with the rest of us. Whether your skill is weaving, Scottish dancing, woodwork or cake decorating, the Get Creative Festival is a brilliant opportunity to share your skills and pick up a few new ones on the way!

Ards Arts Centre’s Get Creative Open Day will be on Saturday 11May. Participation is voluntary but there will be the opportunity to promote your group or business through our promotional material and on the day.

If you would like to get involved in Ards Arts Centre’s Get Creative Open Day please email

If you have your own free event running between 11and 19May then visit the Get Creative website at and sign up your event!
