The Creative School is a student led network of creatives that co-design experiences leading to academic, personal, and communal wellness.
If you believe in Kings, show up to any of their safe spaces, to experience what they've co-designed:
Each first week of the month, Kings co-create an experience to connect their stories to their world. Kings capture the "theme" of the month using their own Polaroid camera, and showcase all of the "storytelling models" they've created.
