Virtual Forest of Imagination 2020

In the light of the current crisis, the Forest of Imagination team is continuing to support children, young people, schools and creative partners. In the first instance we are co-designing a digital version of Forest of Imagination throughout May-July 2020, with a different artist launched each week in collaboration with the Big Green Draw for Creativity and Wellbeing working towards a finale event on 10.10. 2020 in collaboration with TedxBath and TedCountdown and The Big Draw.

TedX Bath – 10 October 2020


Our lives are inter-connected like never before, creating the potential for the ideas in our local communities to be informed by global expertise, and for our global issues to be understood, measured, influenced and resolved by actions taken locally. At TEDxBath 2020 we will be seeking, exploring and sharing powerful ideas with the potential to inspire positive change, both locally and internationally. Booking and more info >

Creative Collaboration 

The Big Draw and Forest of Imagination will work with artists and organisations, encouraging them to respond to the climate crisis, through at-home re-invention, making, drawing, singing, writing and many other forms of expression. Read more about ‘A Climate of Change’.

3DP have worked in their handmade sketchbooks this afternoon, inspired by the cave paintings of Lascaux in France. They have used a range of art media to develop their mark making techniques. @accessart @Artsmarkaward #cavepainting #sketchbooks #primaryart #markmaking
