Dench, Moss and Vegas back campaign to get UK creative

19th February 2015

A campaign to challenge people to get creative has been launched, backed by stars including Dame Judi Dench and Johnny Vegas.

Get Creative is being launched by the BBC and major cultural organisations.

It is described as a year-long celebration of British arts, culture and creativity.

Director general Tony Hall said he hoped the campaign would “inspire everyone to make art or do something creative.”

The campaign has been launched with a day of free activities across the UK, ranging from graffiti in Cardiff to a huge paint-by-numbers painting in Cumbria.

Robin Simpson, chief executive of Voluntary Arts, which has organised the day of events, pointed out that being creative in your daily life can bring many benefits.

“For those who take part, this activity becomes an essential part of their quality of life. Expressing yourself creatively enhances your skills, understanding, confidence and wellbeing – and taking part in creative activity collectively in a group strengthens communities.”
