Voluntary Arts Ireland is hitting the road in May to cover some of the amazing events happening across the North and South of Ireland as part of Voluntary Arts Week and is looking to find four events - one in each province - to showcase. So whatever your artform, get in touch and let us know what you are planning.
This is a great opportunity to get free local and national publicity for your group by simply doing what you do best! Voluntary Arts Ireland will help promote your event in advance of it happening through their national enews and social media platforms and also visit your event to take some video, interviews and photographs. Footage of the event will be published online for all to see and a copy will be sent to you for your own promotional activities. To get involved email Tony at firstname.lastname@example.org with your event details. Deadline Monday 4 May 2012
You don't have to be running an event to get involved in Voluntary Arts Week. Why not join the 'Whats in Your Window' campaign. From 12 – 20 May, the public is asked to display something in their window to celebrate the arts or craft form they love. It could be a painting, piece of knitting, instrument, photo of you singing – anything which shows off your cultural activity.
If you’re part of a group, why not see if your local library, community centre, church hall, shops or offices will let you use their windows to show your work?
Imagine how amazing it would look, if for one week a year windows across the UK and Republic of Ireland were filled with vibrant and colourful arts and crafts!
Visit www.voluntaryartsweek.org.uk to download a ‘What’s in your Window?’ poster to feature alongside your display, or to tell us all about the event you’re running.
Taking place from 12 – 20 May, Voluntary Arts Week highlights the wonderful amateur arts and craft activity taking place throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Thousands of drama groups, orchestras, choirs, knitting circles, dance troupes, painting groups and more meet up each week to enjoy themselves and bring their local communities together. Voluntary Arts Week is all about showing the rest of the nation what you do – and letting them know that they could join in, too!
