LU Arts introduce online creative community
LU Arts has set up a Facebook group for staff, students and the local community called Loughborough Creative Distancing.
The group aims to provide a social space for the community to stay connected through creative ideas, resources and projects during this time of social distancing and self-isolation. The group will evolve over time, but initially it hopes to:
- provide a space to share free online resources/content and ideas for creative projects
- set weekly creative prompts, which encourage members to create something new in their chosen art form in response to a prompt each week
- live stream student-led arts and crafts workshops for members to take part in
An online book club is also being considered with members collaboratively choosing the books they read and discussing them online. There may also be competitions from time to time – details of which will be posted in the group.
Please note although the Facebook group is private, all are welcome to join.
