A full list of our events can be found in the sidebar, including Creative Arts Collective, Life & Botanic Drawing, Pop! Wait A Minute, and Talking Out of Your Arts.

We also co-run two events with the UMSU Media Department:



This year, we’re bringin’ Wordplay to you with the combined artistic power of both the Creative Arts AND Media offices.

Come along for cheap wine, cheap laughs and surprisingly touching moments. ANYONE is welcome to read their work, there is no process beyond standing up on the night. If you’ve ever wanted an audience to hear the voice you write with, you won’t find a more sympathetic crowd anywhere.

Above Water: An annual creative writing competition open to all forms of writing as well as artwork.  Applications have now closed, but join us at our launch party (August 18th, location TBC) where we’ll celebrate our shortlist and announce the winners alongside some bevs! Visit our Facebook page for past guidelines, and to pick up a copy, swing by our office!
