Institute of Imagination

What do you get if you cross a community centre, a laboratory, a studio, a gallery, science centre and a museum? The exciting hybrid model of the Institute of Imagination is certainly one of a kind. It will be a world-class London destination with children at its heart.

The Institute of Imagination run events for children and young people, families, schools and educators from their current home, the Imagination Lab, in Vauxhall.

The Institute of Imagination was set up to create space for children to reimagine the world.

Rather than seeking to change the world, they recognise that the world is already changing rapidly. The focus is on ensuring children and young people are supported to develop the skills they will need to thrive in an uncertain future.

If we want children to be successful and flourish in the world, and not get left behind, then we need to make sure they’ve got skills that are transferable no matter what job they end up going into.
