Everyone is an Artist says Dr Penny Hay I am an artist, educator and researcher and on a daily basis aim to make creativity visible in experimental sites for learning in our House of Imagination.

Forest of Imagination 10.10.2020 in collaboration with TEDxBath, TED Countdown and The Big Green Draw – online and all welcome!
Forest of Imagination is now virtual! Co-founder Dr Penny Hay, explains:
“I do think that this crisis engenders real change, it is a catalyst to hone thinking around new ways of working, now and post Covid, on how we extend meaningful digital engagement responding dynamically and collaboratively to best meet the challenges head-on. Since May, Forest of Imagination has pivoted to a digital programme offering rich, interactive content, alongside artists and in partnership with the Big Green Draw. This includes co-designed online creative activities for children and families with our team of creative professionals and artists, and includes opportunities for feedback and engagement through our websites. For those homes with limited or no internet access, together with Bath Cultural Education Partnership, we are co-designing creative adventure boxes for children, young people and families most impacted by Covid 19 across the Bath area. We are now running up to 10.10.20 to respond to the climate crisis in partnership with TEDxBath and TED Countdown. Countdown is a global initiative to champion and accelerate solutions to climate change, turning ideas into action.”
Forest of Imagination is a partnership between Grant Associates, House of Imagination, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios and Bath Spa University with a host of creative collaborators and kindly supported by Grant Associates, Bath Spa University, Arts Council England and the Comino Foundation as part of the South West Creative Education Hub.
