Inspired by Ken Robinson’s TED talk about ‘How Schools Kill Creativity’, the organisation was established in 2011 to stimulate creative learning outside of the context of traditional education - everyone can be inspired to connect with their creativity.
We create inspirational experiences that connect people with 21st century arts and culture and believe in the ability that the arts has to connect people - these connections are the glue that drive culture forward. Culture is not stagnant - new approaches and new voices are always relevant in our work. We will never have reached enough people and are relentlessly ambitious about the impact our work can achieve.
Inspirate's core business is in the creation of festivals, events and creative engagement programmes. Our expertise spans across a plethora of art forms, including music, dance, theatre, outdoor spectacles, carnival, visual, digital, film and education. We are adept at reaching diverse audiences that represent contemporary Great Britain; Inspirate seeks to inspire people from all walks of life.
