Imagination Celebration is hosting a Colorado Springs_Portal on the grounds of the The Citadel mall at the north entrance by the Food Court.  Colorado Springs is home to an iconic mountain, Pikes Peak; the Olympic Training Center: US Olympic Committee and many international nonprofit organizations. 

Imagination Celebration is a nonprofit connecting people of all ages to the brain-stimulating, life-enhancing, community-building power of creativity by inspiring artistic and intellectual curiosity; instigating community collaborations; and promoting life-long experiential learning to help us thrive in a changing world.   This pop-up public arts installation connects people of all walks of life around the globe - taking us to places that we may never travel to, other than through this Portal.  

One Imagination Celebration program, the What IF…Festival,  celebrates lifelong learning and engages the community with the innovation, creativity, and the entrepreneurial spirit of the Pikes Peak region. The What IF… Festival, is a silo-busting, bridge-building, event fostering intellectual vitality by welcoming participants to creatively engage with businesses, nonprofits, artists, scientists, engineers, performers, athletes, educators, ranchers/farmers, architects, tinkerers, visionaries and students of all ages.
