About the event

Join us for Imagine if… a week-long, online celebration of the life and work of Sir Ken Robinson Phd. Sir Ken passed away in August 2020, and he leaves behind him an incredible legacy for us all to continue.

The event will champion our diversity of talents through performances, talks, discussions, and of course videos of Sir Ken himself.

Our event has two components – March 1st – 3rd: the Imagine If… fringe festival featuring a range of third party organised celebrations, and March 4th: Sir Ken’s birthday will be the official Imagine If… broadcast event. Please stay tuned for the official line-up.

At its core, Imagine if… will act as a launchpad for everyone who is dedicated to continuing Sir Ken’s work.

"We’ve pressed pause on many of our social systems, it’s time to press reset on them as well.”

- Sir Ken Robinson, 2020

About the provocation

During our Imagine If… broadcast on March 4th we will be launching a global campaign called “Imagine if…”. The idea is inspired by Sir Ken’s observation that what separates us from other life on earth is our power of imagination – the ability to bring to mind things that are not present to our senses. It is imagination that allows us to create the world in which we live, rather than just exist in it. It is through imagination that we have both the power and agency to recreate it.

Imagine if… is a provocation to reimagine the parts of life we take for granted and that no longer serve us. Join us by submitting your own response.
