In September 2018 Forest of Imagination took root in the heart of Bath.

Forest of Imagination transformed Kingsmead Square, Avon street and connected the city to Bath Quays shining a much needed light on the River Avon. We created four unique Future Forest areas. The free, three day event, was launched in partnership with Bath Children’s Literature Festival and hosted by Bath Spa University Centre for Cultural and Creative Industries, with workshops, installations and soundscape sculptures, created with artists and businesses, both local and international providing a free creative, architectural and immersive experience for everyone in the city of Bath.
