As we ground into this present moment, know that the ground of imagination we are caring for in this Circle will continue to sustain us as we work out how to move more in sync with the Earth in the ways we live and learn. 

Our work for this calendar year is closing, another round is about to begin.

Starting with projects co-created by members of the group!:

10-12 January – A Dream Team on re-imagining schools

A group of 10 educators, artists and activists from the Imagination in every Classroom project will be presenting their projects on re-imagining schools and some will be leading work sessions on this at the European Congress of Qualitative Inquiry in Helsinki.

10 January-30 April – Re-imagining schools art campaign

What if imagination could shape the future of education? What if your creativity could help redefine the purpose of learning? What if you could help us envision and manifest a new system for education? We invite you to reimagine schools and share your vision through any medium: A song, a poem, a drawing, a painting, a video, your choice! Be part of a global movement reimagining education for all. Let’s design the future!
