Get Creative: Celebrating creativity and well being

The Get Creative Festival is an annual celebration of creative participation of all kinds and the many health and wellbeing benefits that taking part can bring to both individuals and communities. As part of the festival, creative groups and organisations across the UK are invited to showcase their creativity and welcome new people to join them.

As someone who is not very artistic I found it so interesting and productive. A great afternoon with lots of help.

Eleven workshops, nine libraries

11 workshops took place across nine Explore York libraries, harnessing the creative skills and talents of four local artists.

300 participants got creative in their local libraries, getting stuck in to cyanotype photography, group printing, circuit bending and collage.

I thought the workshops went lovely and really enjoyed being in all three of the libraries.  So much diverse conversations and input, and people were really enthusiastic and supportive.
