Cardboard Challenge

Launched from the overwhelming global response to the short film, “Caine’s Arcade,” the Imagination Foundation was founded to find, foster, and fund creativity and entrepreneurship in children around the world to raise a new generation of innovators and problem solvers who have the tools they need to build the world they imagine.

We envision a world in which creativity is a core social value and a critical skill developed in every child; where the innate passion, curiosity, and creativity of children is nurtured in schools, homes, and communities everywhere; where all children are taught to be creative thinkers and doers, and encouraged to make their very best ideas happen in the world.
