It’s Nice That gets Forever Curious

Forever Curious is one of the things we’re most proud of. Now in its fifth year, the creative platform is designed to foster creativity in nine to 11 year-olds from local primary schools and give kids the creative outlet that is desperately lacking in our schools.

At our most recent session, we invited It’s Nice That’s Bryony Stone to buddy up with one of the kids to help them tell their creative story . Forever Curious co-founder Jodie Cariss, who recently helped launch the platform in W+K Portland, has since written for It’s Nice That on the creativity crisis within our schools and what agencies like us can be doing to help.

Being curious and creative is important to us. With cuts to school budgets, children aren’t getting the chance to be as creative as they could be. That’s where Forever Curious comes in.

Each year we invite 90 local school children to get creative with some W+K volunteers. This year’s workshop was called My Creative Spark and included the creation of some imaginary worlds. Each planet in the magical universe has two sides; one made by a child, the other by a W+K buddy. They’ve come together to make a world where anything is possible.

Special thanks to the amazing kids of Millfields, Newport and St Anne’s Primary Schools. Find out Forever Curious more here.
