Let’s Create Art
17 November - 17 December
We are excited to announce the launch of Let’s Create Art 2023. In its second year, the Let’s Create Art campaign will shine a light on the role of learning and participation practices in supporting and inspiring the next generation of artists, cultural workers, and creative thinkers. The campaign invites organisations and individuals to take part in visual arts activities between 17 November and 17 December 2023.
Let’s Create Art recognises the crucial role artist educators, teachers and learning and participation specialists play in developing the creativity and confidence of children and young people. As arts subjects face increasing pressure, Let’s Create Art 2023 champions the innovative, vibrant and engaging activity across the UK lead by practitioners who are committed to removing barriers to participation and creating opportunities for young people to find their own creative pathways.
In addition to commonly understood visual arts activities such as painting, drawing and sculpture, Let’s Create Art activities could further include film, virtual reality, design, craft or socially engaged art practices. It is all about celebrating visual arts engagement and participation, and is open to activities with groups of all abilities and art mediums.
Through a series of resources and sharing opportunities Let’s Create Art 2023 will support organisations and artists in delivering and evaluating impactful arts activities with children and young people. The campaign aims to highlight the impact of participatory art through best practice sharing and embedded evaluation. Whether you are an artist, gallery educator, teacher or young creative, you can join in with Let’s Create Art.
