What is Creative Warwick ?

Creative Warwick 2017 is a campus-wide celebration of the 250+ student societies at Warwick. Taking place each month from January 2017 through to the end of June, there will be something for everyone to get involved with or watch.

Led by Warwick Students’ Union, in partnership with Warwick Arts Centre and the University of Warwick, Creative Warwick will showcase all the incredible things our societies get up to. The campaign will culminate in June (Term 3) with the first-ever ‘Warwick Fringe Festival’ and a Creative Warwick Speaker Event, as well as the annual Societies Awards dinner. The aspiration is that Creative Warwick will then become an annual event.

Our student-led societies involve over 7,500 Warwick students and are renowned for being creative, innovative, enterprising and diverse. As a collective, societies at Warwick consistently raise hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity, help their members develop a wide range of skills and put on thousands of fantastic events throughout the year – including socials, conferences, performances, discussion panels and balls.

Creative Warwick aims to celebrate and raise awareness of the activities of our Societies, providing a platform for greater levels of engagement across campus – including with staff, prospective students and members of the local community. By raising awareness of the creativity inherent to our student Societies, we aim to encourage a discussion around the theme ‘What is creativity?’, and what can we do to foster it across all generations?

Culture January

The Culture theme is all about exploring the cultural diversity we have here at Warwick and how that enables us to be more creative in how we approach new ideas and concepts. It also offers a celebration of the many different liberation groups we have at Warwick, providing information about how their activities and wellbeing work impacts upon the wider student body and contributes to a culture of inclusivity.
