House of Imagination creates spaces to research, share and celebrate the power of imagination
House of Imagination is a research organisation with a focus on children's and young people's creative and critical thinking. It provides a range of spaces where children and young people can collaborate with creative professionals. It is a home for improvisation, creativity and innovation and a place to make those things visible to a local and international audience. In practice we use action research to plan and deliver innovative programmes that enable children to shape their lives through creative activity and schools to change their practices through professional development and school based activity. At its heart is co-enquiry between children, teachers and creative professionals.Why the community needs us
