Get Creative are asking creative organisations, and anybody else who would like to, to join the celebration by providing free (or cost recovery) creative experiences, accessible to all levels of experience and ages.  BBC will be supporting and promoting the campaign on TV, Radio, BBC websites and BBC social media platforms.
