Arnolfini - est 1961

We’re teaming up with art organisations across the city to offer free family art activities in celebration of BBC’s Get Creative.

BBC Get Creative is a year-long celebration of British arts, culture and creativity from digital art to fine art, design to ballet, and poetry to hip-hop. Get Creative Day on Saturday 2nd April celebrates the country’s abundant creativity with a nationwide day of free access to creative events across the country. 

The campaign invites art organisations, community groups and venues of all shapes and sizes to involve the public in free creative experiences.

Join us and Bristol’s other major art galleries – The Royal West of England Academy (RWA) and Spike Island for sessions on Get Creative Day to celebrate the joys of creativity!
