Join us for an exciting and diverse programme of online events celebrating the creative arts at Loughborough University!

From 22-28 June, we'll be showcasing the university’s creative community with a range of different online events taking place in the form of interviews, creative workshops, informative discussions, presentations, readings and quizzes.

As well as academics from Loughborough’s School of Design and Creative Arts, you can also hear from the University’s inspiring students, gain insight from prominent artists and even uncover the art of wrestling! 

All members of the Loughborough community and beyond are welcome to take part.

Other content, such as vlogs by final year Creative Arts students and a podcast by Andrew Dix on Loughborough’s cinema history will be available to download for free throughout the week from our website and social media channels.
