At Story Makers we aim to empower learners through the use of applied arts, drama and problem based learning, equipping them as imaginative changemakers in an uncertain world.  We co-develop new methodologies and research in these areas with artists, teachers, and young people. This approach to education aims to cultivate young people's confidence, wellbeing dispositions, emotional literacy and critical imagination through collective creativity. Stories belong to everyone!
