re-imagine your world

From the first mark on a cave wall to the first footsteps on the Moon, our greatest developments have begun with leaps of someone’s imagination.

The Institute of Imagination is creating a new kind of space for imaginations to grow. A world-class cultural destination in London that puts children at its heart. And a place for families to make, play, create and explore together.

  • “The Institute of Imagination will be a fantastic place to nurture and cultivate the ideas, imagination and dreams of our children. They will be the designers, directors, artists, actors, programmers and architects of tomorrow, and a place dedicated to fostering creativity will be a tremendous addition to British culture, both now and for the future.”
