What is Creative Warwick ?

Creative Warwick is a campus-wide celebration of the 250+ student societies at Warwick. Led by Warwick Students’ Union, in partnership with Warwick Arts Centre and the University of Warwick, Creative Warwick showcases all the incredible things our societies get up to.

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?

The Creative Warwick Fringe Festival
is back for a second year! 22nd-23rd June 2018

This year we have over 30 Societies getting involved this year’s Fringe, with opportunities for you to get involved too! We have a wide range of performances on the bill ranging from bands from this year’s Battle of The Bands, including the winner Tamarack, as well as Edinburgh Fringe Previews and some of our Dance Societies providing us with a wide range of dance styles.

As well as our amazing performances to keep you entertained we also have Warwick Tabletop Games and Roleplaying Society hosting board game events across both days of Fringe in MR2 on Friday and H5.05 on Saturday. They will also be hosting a LARPing workshop on Saturday afternoon, meeting in the Oculus building at 12pm.

Computing Society will be based in a double-decker ROG bus (named ROGer) containing 10 high-end gaming PCs for people to get onboard and play a variety of video games on the latest tech that gaming has to offer! Warwick Amnesty will be based in the SU Atrium for you to have a chat with them about their Society and what they have achieved this year! RAW1215AM will be keeping you entertained in between performances on the main stage, with several of your presenters compering across the weekend.
