Voluntary Arts works to improve the environment for arts participation across the UK, and as an umbrella body provides information and training to thousands of groups and individuals who take part in creative cultural activities. Voluntary Arts’ Spirit-funded project covers five strands: Extending the reach and raising the profile of Voluntary Arts Week – an annual celebration of cultural activity, shining a national spotlight on the wide range of groups that make up the UK’s voluntary arts sector

It is very exciting to have this opportunity to build on the legacy of London 2012, where the involvement of volunteer performers was such a key element of the success of the cultural programme. Developing our staff capacity to engage directly with communities across the whole of the UK will give Voluntary Arts the chance to effect a range of positive changes in the management of, recognition for and participation in creative cultural activity.
