We’re a creative bunch who live at the intersection of creativity and play. We ignite and fuel the creative spark in children and young people, equipping them with skills to be confident, capable, creative citizens in a world of possibilities.
Our kaupapa is to create experiences For, With, By, and Between children and young people.
At the heart of everything we do is respect for the voices, expectations and values of children and young people as creative co-producers, original thinkers and future-makers. They are our peers in the creative process.
Our encounters will be transformative, engaging and fun, and as accessible as possible, connecting our audiences to real-world expertise and opportunities.
We work as a creative connector: collaboratively and in partnership, strengthening our ecosystem.
We are proud of our leadership role; we advocate for children and young people’s creativity and ensure children, young people, parents and caregivers understand the creative process, and how they might grow creatively.
