Imagination Celebration is a 21-year-old non-profit organization that provides quality programming in the arts and sciences to students in the Fort Worth Independent School District and beyond. The Art of Exploration series features nationally recognized scientists who are currently involved in research around the world and are excited to share their love of science with the young people in Fort Worth.
It is the organization's philosophy that the arts inspire and communicate ideas and give reality to the past and imagined future. The arts aid in the development of critical thinking skills, enhance every discipline of study, and most importantly, should be accessible to everyone. As a not for profit organization, ICFW is dependent on generous gifts and grants from government entities, private foundations, corporations and individuals to continue its mission to provide programs which create learning in, through and about the arts and enhance the education of students from kindergarten through university, their teachers and their families.
Membership dollars support programming for area students, including:
The Debbie Allen Dance Institute (DADI) under the leadership of Ms. Debbie Allen which brings star-quality dance masters to teach hundreds of area dancers each June.
The annual one-of-a-kind family arts event, Colors of the Imagination, offering families an opportunity to party together with great entertainment, food, and fun.
The Art of Exploration Series which brings world-renowned scientists to Fort Worth, to work with students in scientific exploration that has included studying dinosaur fossils with Sue Hendrickson, tracking the jaguar with Alan Rabinowicz, and studying the oceans, space, polar regions and treetops of the rainforests. The public is invited to the lecture series to meet the scientists they hear about on National Geographic programs.
More than 19,000 kindergarten, first and second grade students attend performances of puppet shows, theater productions and musical shows annually.
Over 11,000 third and fourth grade students participate in artist workshops, Forts Muster in the Stockyards, and other entertaining and educational events.
5,500 fifth graders experienced colonial living in Philadelphia during the 1700's, without leaving Fort Worth, because Imagination Celebration brings re-enactors to showcase the art, music, military life, and daily living from our historic past.
We have some events that are free, and some events that require an admission fee.
