WRAP Love: activities and events for students and staff

What makes your heart pound? Takes your breath away? Who — or what — do you love? Inspired by our featured writer Musa Okwonga and his novel In the End, It Was All About Love, this term WRAP is on a mission to celebrate the beating heart of NTU.

Staff and students: don't miss out on the opportunity to fall in love with these free events.

WRAP Love-In Lunch

A hand holding a heart-shaped piece of wood.

Date: Thursday 20 January.
Time: 12 noon to 1 pm.

  • City Campus, Newton building — near the coffee pod by the main entrance.
  • Clifton Campus, Pavilion — near the main entrance.

Our first love event is your chance to bring along your lunch and write about — and maybe share — what you love with other love-enthusiasts. Whether you write about a person, animal, location, object or subject… it doesn't matter as long as you love it. This is a free event with no booking required, so why not pop along?

WRAP Valentine's Day Love-In

Balloons that spell out the word love.

Date: Monday 14 February.
Time: 11 pm to 2 pm.
Location: City Campus, Newton building, Central Court.

This Valentine’s Day, there are cards for all, and love poems written on demand by our WRAP ambassadors. No one goes unloved! Students and staff can also write a short message for someone or something close to their heart for a Tree of Love, inspired by the Japanese Tanabata tradition. Drop by for your free card.

Love spelt out onto blocks of wood.

We're giving students and staff the exciting opportunity to see their writing in print in our upcoming anthology All About Love. Pick up a pen and send us your love-themed poetry or prose by 5 pm on Thursday 31 March to be featured.

If you need a second opinion, join our online drop-in session on Monday 21 March from 1 pm to 2 pm.
