Get Creative Festival
10 February, 2020

 

Get Creative Festival, a UK-wide celebration of cultural activities in communities, returns from 9-17 May 2020, and a call for events has been announced.

Whether you're an arts organisation or a community group, you can plan a free or low-cost event for the public as part of this exciting week. Last year, nearly 1,700 events were organised for the festival.

 

Becoming a Community Interest Company (CIC) is an exciting step forward for groups or organisations that want to be a business and have social impact. However, you will need to think about some key issues first, to make sure you're doing the right thing for you and your social enterprise.

This briefing covers why and how to set up as a CIC, and how to run well once you are set up.

What will you learn?
