Raising Imagination is the brainchild of founder Amanda Hambrick Ashcraft, who credits it’s origins to her small town roots, the curiosity and openness of her three young children, the Presidential Election Cycle of 2016, the book “The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion” by Jonathan Haidt, the Theologian Walter Bruggeman, bell hooks, and her countless friends who, over time, expressed poignant interest in Amanda’s ability to seemingly incorporate an activist lifestyle with her family.
Raising Imagination currently only lives online, but will expand to offer meet-ups, curriculum, programming, and conferences in the future.
Amanda is available for small group sessions, speaking engagements, or scheming sessions over coffee or wine. Contact us to inquire.
