A Climate of Change

Forest of Imagination and The Big Draw join forces

Forest of Imagination and The Big Draw join forces during the pandemic to shine a light on the importance of nature and creativity in our wellbeing.

Harnessing the power of their collective message, and to promote the importance of creativity and collaboration; Forest of Imagination will work alongside The Big Draw, supporting a shared vision in response to the climate emergency, endorsing the positive viewpoint that ‘A Climate of Change’ is essential using creativity as a tool for change.

Working Together 

The two arts organisations, The Big Draw and Forest of Imagination are working with artists, encouraging them to respond to the climate crisis, through at-home re-invention, making, drawing, singing, writing and many other forms of expression. To further distribute their message of ‘A Climate of Change’ by building a radical and creative response together.

Local and international artists have created and are bringing a collection of videos, interviews, news and blog posts to inspire and support the shared belief of everyone being able to access creativity, drawing and making. These videos, images, ideas, poetry workshops and inspirations will be shared on both organisations social media platforms and here on our website.

Dr Penny Hay, co-founder at Forest of Imagination and House of Imagination said: “This is a wonderful and creative collaboration with big themes and key messages in response to the climate emergency – it is an invitation for everyone to get involved in a conversation about our collective imagination and how we can work together to make a difference”.
