Let’s All Create!

During the Covid Lockdowns of 2020-21 across the region cultural organisations, schools and communities worked together to produce resources for families in need of additional support while staying at home. These groups provided creative materials and inspiration; from Lego sets to cress seeds. A partnership of Norfolk & Norwich Festival, Local Cultural Education Partnerships, 64 Million Artists, and Norfolk Museums made creative inspiration packs which were distributed directly to families.   

These creative packs, suitable for all ages, are available for anybody to download and print at home, in school or in a youth group. Lots of the activities are designed to be completed in the pack itself, but don’t worry if you can’t print it as there are also lots of ideas for creative things to do with equipment that you may well have at home anyway.   

The Summer Holiday Art Pack contains lots of activities designed to be done outdoors in pleasant weather, but there’s plenty to do indoors too, from recycling old clothes to illustrating maps.

The Spring Half Term Art Pack contains 17 daily creative challenges to keep you busy during half term. You’ll need minimal equipment and can complete challenges such as writing poems, designing a T-Shirt and undertaking a random act of kindness.

The Make It Merry Art Pack has a festive theme. It is full of creative activities inspired by nature and the local area of Norwich, and like the other packs can be printed out or you can refer to it online to complete the activities.

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
