King's Cultural Challenge
Connecting students with some of London’s most innovative cultural organisations
King's Cultural Challenge is currently on hiatus for 2019/20
King’s Cultural Challenge ran from 2013 to 2018, and invited students to debate and develop ideas for how arts and culture can make a positive difference to the world.
Through a series of themed events, workshops and hackathons, students developed their professional skills and started a student-led conversation about the future of arts and culture.
The Challenge culminated in a final event at which students pitched their ideas to peers and senior leaders from cultural partner organisations including Royal Opera House, Southbank Centre, Breathe Arts Health Research, V&A and the Roundhouse, with the winners securing paid internships.
King’s students bring a distinctive perspective, new energy and their collective and individual brain power to some of the cultural sector’s key challenges and opportunities.
There’s a real joy and practical satisfaction in seeing your project working and impacting a community that you can only get through contact with organisations of this stature and reputation.
