Make Do Play: Wellbeing Through Creativity

MadeDoplaynologo

This March King’s will launch ‘Make Do Play’, a cross-university challenge to explore how creative activity can enhance mental wellbeing.

To put the growing body of research on arts, health and wellbeing into practice King’s is hosting the ‘Make Do Play’ live experiment from 1 – 28 March, inviting students to take part in daily creative challenges alongside artist-led practical sessions.

Featuring:

  • SPECIAL GUEST - Gareth Malone, Community Singing
  • Angela Maddock, Craft Making
  • Rosa Roberts, Visual Artist
  • Jane Woolley, Rambert, Dancing

The ‘Make Do Play’ challenge will culminate in a dance flash-mob on campus. Alongside the daily prompts, leading artists from the fields of singing, drawing, dancing and making will run drop-in sessions across King’s. These short, fun activities have been carefully co-designed by King’s students so you can try a creative activity in an enjoyable, relaxed environment.

As part of the Make Do Play community, you will be invited to reflect on and share your creative experiences using the campaign hashtag #MakeDoPlay. King’s will also ask you to check in on your mood during the campaign, helping you to discover how creativity can enhance your everyday wellbeing and providing valuable insights on its impact.
