Curious Minds

enabling creative collaboration

Curious Minds is an organisation that delivers high quality services to clients and partners from a broad range of professional disciplines concerned with education and creative learning, regeneration and renewal, social cohesion and the development of emotional well being and creativity.

Developing effective collaborative partnerships is at the core of our philosophy. The partnerships we help to develop contribute to our shared capacity to deliver improved outcomes for children, young people, their families and communities.

Our Mission

We believe it is the right of all people to have the opportunity to realise their creative potential. Our mission is to work in partnership with others to stimulate positive personal and social change through the development of curiosity, creativity and learning.

Curiosity, as a catalyst for creativity, learning and development, is the starting point of our work. Curious minds are engaged, purposeful, imaginative, playful and open. We want to encourage the curiosity of children and young people and help adults to retain a curious attitude. Through enabling a broad range of creative collaborations, we believe we can contribute to the development of thriving and prosperous communities, making a real difference to our shared capacity to apply creative solutions to the challenges and opportunities facing society.

Intentions and principles

  1. Developing improved outcomes for children and young people is a core principle that acts as a foundation for all of our work.
  2. We work with children, young people and their communities as active partners in creative learning programmes, developing their emotional and social well being and increasing their capacity for leadership and decision making.
  3. We work with a wide range of additional partners to develop effective and innovative creative learning opportunities for children and young people with an emphasis on supporting the aims of The Children's Plan.
  4. We promote and campaign for culture and creativity as the foundation for economic and social regeneration.
  5. We enhance the development of networks that connect people and communities through fostering innovative collaborative partnerships that deliver tangible results.
  6. We work in ways that are exciting, inspiring, inclusive, creative and enabling.
