From performances to poetry, explore culture and creativity at King's


King's Culture is a dynamic specialist arts and culture unit working across the university to develop creative collaborations that aim to enhance your time at King's.

King’s Culture primarily works across two sites, Strand Aldwych (Strand Campus) and Science Gallery London (Guy’s Campus).

Their mission is to enhance your time at King’s with a diverse range of artistic, cultural and creative experiences. 

From exciting new exhibitions inspired by King's cutting-edge research, to opportunities to connect with artists and researchers on student-led projects, or support with creative events produced by the King's community, King’s Culture’s varied programme looks to create and curate engaging cultural experiences you can explore and get involved in.

Recent projects have explored themes including emerging digital technologies, climate and sustainability, conflict and displacement, and creative health.
