Did you know that drawing lowers your heart rate? Dancing and singing reduces stress? Craft increases your ability to focus? 

Make Do Play is an annual programme which encourages staff and students in the #KingsCulturalCommunity to take part in creative activities for their wellbeing.



Online Creative Prompts

Every week during term-time we share a creative prompt via social media or direct to your inbox, challenging the #KingsCulturalCommunity to take time out during their week to engage in creativity. Prompts are designed for staff and students of all abilities and can be done with regular household items.  

Workshops and Events

** In-person events and activities are currently on hold until practical and safe in line with Covid-19 social distancing guidance. Sign-up to the #KingsCulturalCommunity student mailing list to be the first to find out about any online creative sessions and hear when we are able to run in-person events. **
