KIDS IMAGINE

It’s no secret that we love seeing kids get creative and believe that believe it’s essential that kids get the chance to get involved in the arts. There’s no doubt in our minds that STEM is better with a little STEAM.

Kids who grow up making and seeing art are more creative, better able to express themselves and have stronger problem-solving skills. Being able to think creatively is an essential skill, no matter what you do with your life.

So, this year we’re offering an amazing opportunity for the next generation of performers, creatives and budding artists to participate in our free Kids Imagine program for kids between 10-15 years old.

This program is like nothing you’ve seen before – this is not dance lessons or acting classes – this is 6 months of weekly workshops, taking place each Monday of the school term, where kids will truly take the lead in coming up with ideas and working with professional artists to produce performances.

Kids Imagine returns in early 2021. Click through to your preferred workshops below to find out more.

Please note – past Kids Imagine participants are required to register register for the activities they’re interested in.
