Re-Imagine projects are designed to enable communities to explore ideas, issues and spaces through playful exploration. They invite people of all ages to express their own ideas through creative consultation activities and enable us develop resources with our partners to enable further creative experiences. 

Explore our Re-Imagine work below - playing with the filters will allow you to sort items according to your interests.

The projects take place in many diverse and extraordinary spaces; including hospitals, hospices, our local waste management centre, community halls, retirement homes, and local neighbourhoods as well as galleries and museums and heritage sites. They often include professional development elements to explore and develop approaches for creative practice with particular professional groups. Our current projects have diaries that can be explored here.

Many of these projects set out to produce particular resources for our partners. Most recently we developed the PropsBox, a family friendly toolkit for navigating contemporary art galleries, but have also created temporary installations for galleries and creative documentation and displays to support ongoing engagement with ideas and audiences.

Evaluations indicate that the projects have a lasting impact on those we work with - Igniting a Fuse explores the impact on educators of our accredited course with the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education; Enemies of Boredom looks at the professional development programme linked to the Hundred Languages of Children Exhibition in Cambridge; and Can you stay and make tomorrow never come details artist led projects with Creative Partnerships schools.
