UCL Art Museum on Tour - Run Run Run London: The Runner's High and Creativity

UCL Art Museum on Tour - Run Run Run London: The Runner's High and Creativity

Date: 1 November | Time: 1-3pm | Location: UCL North Lodge, main entrance of University College London, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT | Price: Free, booking required | Age group: Adults

Join artists Kai Syng Tan and Jo Volley in a hands-on, or rather, feet-on exercise exploring the links between running, the runner’s high and creativity. Meet Kai at UCL and run/walk with her to Hampstead Heath (approximately 3.5 miles).

As we run, we will share thoughts, personal anecdotes and speculations about how running can be conducive to problem-solving or bring about unusual modes of thinking that depart from how we think when we do not move or run. At our destination, we run into Jo, who shows us where she runs and looks out for oak apples that she uses in her artworks which we proceed to see in her studio located nearby. Who knows, after this run, you may run home feeling so energized that you go on to create a masterpiece. Or two.
