Image Festival at the Southbank Centre
The Imagine Festival aims to provide a fun and stimulating range of activities (the spoken & written word, drama, dance, art, music and crafts) where children can explore and develop their own creativity, and learn from experts and each other. We enable children to try out and learn new skills in a non-formal way, and aim to inspire them to return again to Southbank Centre to experience new and exciting projects and festivals, and also incredibly importantly, to return to their homes and schools with a keenness and confidence to pursue and further develop their own story-telling, poetry writing, music-making, drama, dance, art, and more. Southbank Centre works on regular evaluations and research with visiting children and their parents. We have lots of free events and open workshops taking place during Imagine Festival this year. Imagine Festival is about putting children in charge - we will be having Kids Takeover week where children take over the running of Southbank Centre - and workshops such as Become a Superhero where children are empowered to create their own character and their own story. Daily participatory learning activities include the Imagine Craft Pavilion and Beastie, where children create their own stories and take part in the show. Children are able to hear their favourite authors, question them about the stories and poems, and learn first-hand about creative writing techniques. Southbank Centre's heritage is rooted in the 1951 Festival of Britain. Our artistic programming, based on a series of annual and one-off themed festivals, builds on this heritage and enables us to deliver our vision of being the world's most inspiring centre for the arts. The programme includes classical and world music, rock and pop, jazz, dance, literature and spoken word and the visual arts and attracts the most diverse audience of any UK venue. We have a real commitment to engaging and enthusing children and young people. Lambeth schoolchildren use the Festival Hall for their annual Lambeth Schools Music Festival.
