The University of Winchester has completed the second annual Play and Creativity Festival in April 2018 and is preparing for the 2019 Festival. The Play and Creativity Festival brings together staff and students for a week of playful and creative events, which happen all across campus in both familiar and new spaces. The Play and Creativity Festival team organised the event, pulled together a programme for all the Festival’s sessions and lead on marketing and promotion. Throughout the Festival students were also engaged as champions alongside staff within each faculty, galvanising support and inspiring session leaders. This paper will provide a case study of its practice, tracking its developments and looking to the future of The Play and Creativity Festival.
