Forest of Imagination and The Big Draw join forces
Forest of Imagination and The Big Draw join forces during the pandemic to shine a light on the importance of nature and creativity in our wellbeing.
Harnessing the power of their collective message, and to promote the importance of creativity and collaboration; Forest of Imagination will work alongside The Big Draw, supporting a shared vision in response to the climate emergency, endorsing the positive viewpoint that ‘A Climate of Change’ is essential using creativity as a tool for change.
The two arts organisations will reach out to 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. To further distribute their message of ‘A Climate of Change’ by building a radical and creative response together.
Local and international artists will bring a collection of videos, interviews, news and blog posts to support the importance of creativity, drawing and making to a broader audience. These will be shared on our mutual social media platforms and right here on our website.
Dr Penny Hay, co-founder of Forest of Imagination and House of Imagination said: “This is a wonderful and creative collaboration with big themes and key messages in response to the climate emergency – it is an invitation for everyone to get involved in a conversation about our collective imagination and how we can work together to make a difference”.
