5x5x5=creativity is an independent arts-based, action research organisation with charitable status. Our aim is to support children, education professionals and artists in the creative exploration, expression and communication of their ideas and, in so doing, to learn more about how creativity and innovation can be nurtured. In the long term, we hope to demonstrate the life-wide positive impact of the effective development of creative thinking in children and the benefits that these approaches will have for communities and society as a whole.

When first established in 2000, the project was hosted by Bath and North East Somerset Council. It initially involved five artists, five galleries and five schools. From 2002-6 we focused on creativity in the early years, inspired by the innovative educational practice in Reggio Emilia in Northern Italy. Over the last 9 years, 95 early years settings and primary schools have been involved across 6 Local Authorities in the South West.
