Forest of Imagination 2022

Keeping communities connected with creativity

Living Tree Mirror Maze at the Egg Theatre 17 June- 3 July and a free family fun forest on Sunday 24 July at the American Museum and Gardens.

In 2022 Forest of Imagination continues its radical response to the global environmental crisis through creativity & research. 2021’s event was hybrid with the Travelling Forest located across the city as well as virtual offerings.

The award-winning arts event is bringing the Forest work of multi-sensory array of participation art installations, workshops, architecture, sculptures and audio experiences online and invites everyone to participate.  Adapting to the current situation, however our ambition remains the same: to connect communities with creative activities and inspiring events.

Working with artists, collaborators, architects, musicians, writers, sponsors, businesses, local and global organisations, Forest prepares to reveal it’s roots as a Landscape City and Creative City popping up in multiple virtual locations and reaching out to the diverse community of Bath and beyond…

The Travelling Forest 2022 & Landscape City

Our hybrid event sees the Forest appearing virtually and in a variety of locations throughout the city of Bath, each unique place, reflecting the culture and character of the city. These ‘Pop-Up’ Forest workshops, installations and research will take place during these events gathering research and ideas which will continue to generate the seeds for Forest of Imagination events in the future.

Forest of Imagination 2022 will continue to embed Forest into the longer term identity of the city.

Our ambition is to establish Forest of Imagination as a showcase for the creativity of the city, whilst inviting internationally significant artists and designers to help raise the international profile of Forest and Bath as a city of creativity.
Forest of Imagination is free to all.

The natural world is a powerful generator of childhood curiosity and those early sparks of imagination are often at the heart of our life-long creativity.
