This year’s Forest of Imagination will be co-designed by Berlin based artist and filmmaker Andrew Amondson and computational architect Sasha Mballa-Ekobena, alongside maths educator Professor Alf Coles, University of Bristol and architect Marcus Rothnie Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios. You are invited to explore a fun-filled forest and magical mirror maze with an integrated creative learning programme for schools and families. Playful installations will highlight the importance of nature, wellbeing and creativity with imaginative solutions to the climate crisis.

Explore the Living Tree with Andrew Amondson as he shares his inspirations and invites you to co-create a living, growing sculpture in theatre. Reflecting on our relationship with nature and one another, a mathemagical mirror maze will multiply the forest experience for all. Lose yourself in the forest, in the sights, sounds and smells of this beautiful living classroom.

We used to frame forests as scary, dangerous places and are now telling such a different story of caretaking. I can’t think of anything I’ve seen that expresses that better or with more delight. That some should grow up with a love of nature seems to me to be a deeply positive and hopeful statement.” Margaret Heffernan, international author
