Andrew Amondson  Artist and Filmmaker Andrew Amondson is based in Berlin and created a series of films for Forest of Imagination’s #VirtualForest2020.

“I was in Bath last summer for the Forest of the Imagination and was so inspired that I had to come back for this year’s virtual forest. Like a Forest, we are all connected and we use our social networks to share information and inspiration. And I believe that it is our connectedness, to each other and to nature, in concert with our creativity, that will generate the answers to this climate crisis and the question of how we make a better world for us all.”

TedX Bath – 10 October 2020

Inter-Connected

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’.
