I cannot recommend this workshop enough. My 10 year old daughter has grown in ways I could never have expected. The price is unbelievably generous given what’s achieved at the other end. If you want to double your return, I recommended making a conscious effort to support your child through-out the process; that way you’ll gain plenty too. What an enriching and invaluable experience and we’ll forever be grateful for the opportunity. Thank you Jane. x
Why we need to be nurturing creative thinkers Now!
Why having a framework she can use every day to create new and novel ideas will make her super valuable in the future.
Your daughter doesn’t need to know what she wants to be or do when she ‘grows up’. There is something else more important.
I just wanted to pass on to you a our gratitude for having the privilege to be involved in such an incredible event. Siobhan was so inspired and said she wished it was a week and not just a day. I know it is going to help her confidence and encourage her in her creativity. I found the Artists panel so insightful and know that what was shared has given the girls a rare glimpse of an artists real life and not just the glossy picture which is not easy to find in this world. Siobhan loved the workshop and creating her mood board...watch this space. Thank you again so much for creating this amazing experience. We are so grateful.”
Smart organisations and think tanks like the World Economic Forum are crying out for creative thinkers. They have it in their top three skills for the future.
Those that have creativity in their ‘tool kit’ of skills will be well placed for the future. No longer will task based work be paid well. Machines can do that so much better.
Every day we have problems to solve, some big and some small. Increasingly we need to think about new and novel ways to resolve them.
The old ways of doing things just won’t cut it any more. We are seeing the affects of this in climate, degradation of land, extinction, wars and inequality etc. All these are solvable.
Creativity when applied, is exciting. It gives us a natural high.
We are excited by a future made up of people allowed to use their creativity to its fullest.
Problem is, the older we get, we forget how to be creative. We want to nurture that creativity, with your help, so that our children can have a future they are excited about and understand how to thrive not just survive in it!

Dreaming Big for Little Girls
DBFLG is an organisation that creates opportunities for girls 10-15 y/o anywhere in the world, to participate in creative activities that nurture their creative thinking skills. We use art to teach the creative process.
Jane Harbison is the founder of Dreaming Big for Little Girls.
She wasn’t always in the creative space. She spent the first 25 years doing accounting and still uses it. At 40, she realised she wanted to do something more. Creativity is where she naturally sits and she loves it. The truth be known she should have always played in this space.
People are increasingly talking about the importance of creativity as a key skill for the future. Not just the output of creativity like art, design and craft, but the process of creativity.
It is the later she talks about with girls 10-15 y/o. When tweens and teens master the creative process they will be in high demand. Some schools are starting to address it which is wonderful, but it is often still at the fringes of core curricular. Understanding the creative process gives children an edge and applies to anything requiring a new and novel approach.
In addition to her work here, she has been involved in the governance of independent schools for 15 years. She is always interested in the direction good pedagogy is taking and she is encouraged to see some educators showing an interest in project based learning – an approach she feels is invaluable. So much is learned from ‘doing’.
Jane also takes inspiration from neuroscience, psychology, business, behavioural sciences, economics, art, design, nature, politics and travel. Jane is curious. This, combined with a love of learning and surrounding herself with talented people she is able to create experiences that are unique.
