A focus on the importance and future of childhood & creativity
The Re-imagining Childhood event brings together a wonderful group of leading thinkers and creative professionals to explore the possibility of a different kind of childhood for our children, one that values the power of the imagination. The event aims to engage everyone in a meaningful debate about contemporary childhood and the impact of this on our society by asking big questions about children’s lives, such as ‘What kind of people do we want young children to grow up to be?’ and ‘How can we learn in and through the arts?’
We hope everyone will want to get involved and help re-imagine a more compassionate world for children with the arts at the heart of our lives.
With inspiring talks, creative workshops and presentations, the Re-imagining Childhood event is aligned with Bath’s free annual Forest of Imagination contemporary arts event and core festival partners include Bath Festivals, The National Trust, the Royal Society of Arts (RSA) and the Crafts Council.
