We make imagination part of everyday learning by awakening creativity, curiosity and courage in children and adults. We inspire a love of learning through creative engagement via our What IF…Festival of Innovation and Imagination, Imagination Space, Kaleidoscope Dance, Dragon Theatre, School Theater, CACTUS (serving active military, veterans and their families), and The Portals project connecting us to the world!
Crisis situations require creative and innovative responses! Imagination matters more than ever. Through our initiatives, adults re-engage their curiosity and remember the joy of meaningful play; children explore the creative process and grow a love of learning; teens find their voice and a passion that translates into life skills; and “makers” experience healing. We instigate creativity and empower possibilities.
