What is the Funsa approach?

Our starting approach is NICE 

Nature based

Inclusive

Creative

Educational

Nature based- We aim to use natural products or recycle, reuse or repurpose items wherever possible

Inclusive- We design events that are inclusive for all, encourage a feeling of safety and belonging and develop community

Creative- We bring in the creative arts where possible and try to encourage people to find their inner artist and to play

Educational- Our events have a core message that we hope plants a seed of curiosity in participants and leads to further investigation and learning

Where did Funsa start?

Funsa was born from the recognition that all creative approaches start with an enquiring mind.

We can develop this curiosity regardless of our personal circumstances and this ability is a truly liberating experience! 

What skills and experiences do you bring and what can we cook up together?
