Hey Clay! is part of the Get Creative festival (11th-19th May), a national campaign to support everyday creativity which is run by Crafts Council, Voluntary Arts, Family Arts Campaign, What Next?, Arts Council England, Arts Council Wales, Creative Scotland, Arts Council of Northern Ireland,  64 Million Artists and Creative People and Places.

The Get Creative campaign is about encouraging  everyone to try something creative. Its aim is to give people the chance to try something for free that they may want to pursue more regularly.
