Welcome to Wizard Stories!
Gary Potter and Phil Keating founded Wizard Stories in 2000. Wizard believes the power of stories can release creativity and fire the imagination within each child, allowing them to explore ideas, themes and emotions and take them to extraordinary places. Each Wizard Story is as unique as the group that meets to listen, imagine and create.
Wizard Stories is engaged in a wide variety of projects and residencies across the country and internationally; bridging the generation gap with reminiscence work, breathing new life to exhibits through museum and gallery residencies, inspiring and empowering children with the tools to embark on their own creative writing projects, invading classrooms with historical characters, as well as creating over seven hundred brand new stories to an audience of over one hundred thousand children, young people, families and professionals each year.
Our passion for stories is infectious, we have secured residencies in the London Boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Enfield, Haringey, Havering, Islington, Newham, Redbridge, Southwark, and Waltham Forest; forged powerful partnerships with Arts Council England, Creative Partnerships, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Hertfordshire County Council, Luton Borough Council, Metropolitan Police, Nat West Bank, Redbridge Drama Centre, Redbridge and Waltham Forest Health Authority, Shillam & Smith, Stratford Circus, York City Council and Wiltshire County Council and Windsor Mountain Centre for Experiential Learning, New Hampshire (USA).
