The Forest of Imagination is coming back to Bath this Summer, teaming up with the Holburn Museum.
Taking place for its sixth consecutive year, this year, the festival, which takes place for four days, invites people of all ages to experience a ‘Life Line’ of multi-sensory art installations that stretches from Laura Place, along Great Pulteney Street, to the Holburne Museum and into Sydney Gardens. The ‘Life Line’ aims to celebrate nature as a lifelong source of creative inspiration for all, as well as encouraging people to experience the iconic places in an entirely new way, with reference to themes surrounding wellbeing, the environment and the future.
Laura Place and Great Pulteney Street will temporarily become a tree-lined promenade leading to a fantastical ‘portal’, by Piers Taylor and Charley Brentnall, at the Holburne’s entrance, inviting visitors to explore its collections, exhibitions and parkland setting. Sydney Gardens will be re-imagined as a 21st century pleasure garden with a sustainable, temporary pavilion, along with innovative artworks and participatory workshops that extend up to the Kennet and Avon Canal.
The playful installations include works by local and international artists and involve the participation of more than 20 local schools and the support of 42 partner organisations and businesses.
