Philosophy through Art started as an idea bounced between two teachers sitting next to each other whilst working at School of the Arts (SOTA) - how could we make abstract concepts in Critical Art Theory and Philosophy more accessible to children? Over the years teaching and designing curriculum, we saw how important it was to make kids question, wonder and invent. After 6 years of heated discussion and debate, brave new worlds was born!
